In Florida does alimony stop if spouse remarries?

The primary element in the court’s decision regarding alimony awards is financial need and ability to pay. Therefore, cohabitation and/or remarriage alone is not grounds to terminate or modify an alimony arrangement. However, F.S. 61.14 now grants the court the ability to adjust or terminate the alimony award if it is evident that the party receiving alimony has entered into a “supportive relationship” since the dissolution. Rehabilitative alimony payments are treated slightly different. Since the goal of rehabilitative alimony is to support and rehabilitate, only the amount for support is subject to modification.
