Can Men Seek Alimony in Florida?

Absolutely. Because Florida law does not create a presumption with regard to gender whether male or female, very much like it does with regard to custody not showing a presumption for the mother over the father. Similarly in alimony calculations, it’s just simply based on need and ability to pay. If the wife makes considerably more money than the husband, and the husband has a need for alimony and the wife has the ability to pay, that would certainly be up to the court to award in that case.
