Alimony is a type of payment for the support and maintenance of a spouse, either by lump sum or on a continuing basis. Alimony is paid by the supporting spouse to the dependent spouse.

In divorce cases, alimony, also referred to as spousal support, is based primarily on two important factors: the need and an ability to pay. This gives the Florida courts have the authority to grant spousal support to either party in a divorce. The spousal support / alimony award could be deemed permanent or rehabilitative (temporary).

The individual who is requesting alimony / spousal support has to prove that he or she really needs to be supported and the other spouse has the financial means and ability to pay that support.
