Alimony Modification

Under Florida divorce law §61.14, alimony payments may be modified by a Florida family law court if there is a substantial change in circumstances of either party. The modification can either increase, decrease, or terminate the alimony paid to an ex-spouse.

Similar to child support and child custody modifications, changes to alimony payments must be approved by the court; an unofficial agreement between the two parties will not be sufficient to legally alter the alimony award. If you have questions about your alimony award or feel there has been a change in circumstances that warrants a modification, you should contact a divorce attorney at our firm for legal advice. A Tampa divorce lawyer at our firm can explain your legal options and take the necessary steps to help ensure your alimony award is fair and just.

In Florida, there are several reasons why a modification or termination of alimony may be approved by the court. Some of the most common reasons for a modification are:

  • Changes in a party’s ability to pay alimony
  • An unexpected medical emergency
  • Death of a party
  • Retirement
  • Incarceration

rehabilitative alimony in Florida

Rehabilitative alimony in Florida is financial support intended to provide a former spouse with the opportunity to establish the capacity for self-support, proportionate to the standard of living during the marriage. The length of the marriage will play a factor in whether or not rehabilitative alimony is appropriate, but it is not dispositive. Instead, the focus should be on the impact the marriage had on the earning potential of the spouse seeking alimony.
