Types of Alimony

Judges award alimony based on a few different factors. Some of these factors include the length of the marriage, what each party brought to the marriage, the need for alimony, and the ability to pay the alimony. Alimony may also be awarded for certain periods of time. Mr. Ventura can help you determine the specific details of your case and will be happy to discuss alimony issues with you.

Some of the different types of alimony are:

  • Temporary alimony—paid before the divorce is finalized and based on the need of one party and the ability of the other party to pay.
  • Rehabilitative alimony—typically paid when one person has less of an income than the other due to giving up opportunities in favor of supporting the other person’s career. This type requires that the recipient detail a rehabilitative plan such as returning to school or additional job training.
  • Bridge-the-gap alimony—designed to assist in the transition from married to single life and does not usually exceed two years.
  • Durational alimony—for those who are ineligible for permanent alimony, durational alimony provides assistance for a set period of time, provided the other person is able to pay. Assistance typically lasts no longer than the length of the marriage.
  • Permanent alimony—for cases of a long duration marriage, usually more than 17 years, with an income disparity or unusual health issues, this type provides support based on need and the ability to pay.
  • Nominal alimony—when a person is unable to provide the support the other party needs, . Nominal alimony provides the ability to modify future amounts until the amount is able to be paid in full.
  • Lump sum alimony—this settlement names a specific total amount, rather than a monthly requirement, payable through the distribution of funds or through equitable distribution of property or other assets.
