What is Transitional Alimony?
Speak with Our Tampa Alimony Lawyers
If you are going through a divorce in Florida and you find that you do not qualify for permanent alimony or rehabilitative alimony, there is another type of spousal support for which you might be eligible. Transitional alimony is a method of financial assistance in the form of a one-time payment made by one spouse to another.
Transitional alimony is a short-term financial payment with a finite end point. The purpose of this type of financial support is to allow one of the partners in the marriage to make the “transition” from married life to single life. This type of alimony can be used to pay a down payment on a different living situation or it could be used to hire a moving company.
This type of alimony can also be used for the following:
- Pay for vocational training
- Help with housing and other needs
- Support while looking for a job
