Once it has been established that your divorce involves alimony, there is always the question of how long it will last. In particular, the most common forms of alimony are permanent alimony and limited duration alimony. The length is suggested by the name. One is labeled permanent (although that is not necessarily the case) and the other is for a limited period of time.

There are no charts that determine if your alimony is permanent or of limited duration. For instance, you cannot just say that since your marriage was 10 years or more it is permanent, but if it was for 10 years or less that it is only a limited term. To the contrary, we are to consider various factors including the length of the marriage.
