Currently there are four types of alimony awarded under Florida law. Florida Statute 61.08 provides for the possibility of an award for Bridge-the-Gap, Rehabilitative, Durational, and Permanent Alimony.

Although permanent alimony is “still on the books”, there have been strong movements forming in south Florida and across the country for the reform of alimony, including the abolishment of permanent alimony entirely.

As an example, a recent article in the Asbury Park Press addressed the efforts to have the New Jersey Legislature examine the alimony laws currently in existence in that state, just as Massachusetts has done in recent years.
