Durational Alimony

Tampa Durational Alimony Lawyers

Understand Your Rights After Divorce

If you and a spouse were married for less than 17 years and are currently in the middle of a divorce, it is imperative that you consider the option of durational alimony. While similar to permanent alimony, durational alimony is believe to be better suiting to shorter marriages. Our Tampa durational alimony attorneys can help explain this type of alimony and how you may benefit. Givens Givens Sparks is here to help you get through your difficult family law matter.

A recent concept under Florida law, this type of alimony is awarded by determining several factors, including the following:

  • Duration of the marriage
  • Standard of living within the marriage
  • Physical condition
  • Financial resources
  • Earning capacity of each party
  • Contributions made during the marriage

Like permanent alimony, durational alimony can be tax deductible for the paying party. Unlike permanent alimony, however, this type of alimony is only paid for a certain amount of time which cannot exceed the length of the marriage. As this is a new concept under Florida law, it is important that you do not hesitate to discuss this with our firm as quickly as possible. We have two Board Certified Marital and Family Law Specialists on staff and we are backed by more than 135 years of experience.
