Bridge-The-Gap Alimony

In Florida, three forms of alimony are available: bridge-the gap, rehabilitative, or duration alimony.

A court determines whether or not to award alimony by determining whether the party seeking alimony has a need, and the paying spouse has the ability to pay.

Bridge-the-Gap alimony is awarded to help a party transition from being married, to being single. It is specifically awarded to assist a party with legitimate, short-term needs.

Bridge-the-Gap alimony may not exceed 2 years in length.

Bridge-the-Gap alimony terminates upon the death of either party, or upon the remarriage of the receiving spouse.

It is important to note that bridge-the-gap alimony is not modifiable in amount or duration.
