Can a court award two kinds of alimony at the same time in Florida?

In Florida, a court can award two types of alimony at the same time. The common scenario is where the court orders rehabilitative alimony to assist a party in rehabilitating their earning capacity so they are better able to support themselves and their minor children. The court can also award permanent periodic alimony to that same spouse.
