Will adultery affect alimony?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

In Florida, adultery will usually not be relevant to a judge’s determination for permanent alimony; however, if marital funds were used to further the adulterous relationship, it can be considered during the divorce. The funds used on the relationship may be considered a waste and be a credit awarded to the innocent spouse.

Does the length of marriage affect alimony?

By Florida Law Advisers, P.A. |

Yes, the length of the marriage will impact the judge’s decision to determine rehabilitative alimony. Generally, short-term marriages are only eligible for short rehabilitative alimony. Permanent alimony, durational alimony, and rehabilitative alimony awards are usually reserved for only long-term or medium-term marriages.
