Bridge the Gap Alimony

Bridge-the-gap alimony is covered under Florida Statutes Section 61.08 (5). Bridge-the-gap alimony may be awarded to assist a party by providing support to allow the party to make a transition from being married to being single. Bridge-the-gap alimony is designed to assist a party with legitimate identifiable short-term needs, and the length of an award may not exceed two (2) years. An award of bridge-the-gap alimony terminates upon the death of either party or upon the remarriage of the party receiving alimony. An award of bridge-the-gap alimony shall not be modifiable in amount or duration.

It is readily apparent that divorce can cause a significant economic hardship, but one spouse may be especially affected. Bridge-the-gap alimony is used in situations where a particular spouse requires financial assistance for a relatively short amount of time in order to allow them to adjust to the transition into single life. Let the legal team at Segarra & Associates, P.A. assist you in determining which alimony provision is best for your particular divorce proceeding.
