Florida Alimony Reform Discussion

Florida law firm Ayo & Iken has a discussion on alimony reform in Florida by a panel of attorneys.
I think alimony reform in some form will happen. There are people out there who are getting stuck with 70 to 80 percent of their earnings going to alimony and child support, and I don’t think that’s fair. It seems the more time goes by these bills are a lot more thought out and there’s been compromise there. I like the guidelines and clearer definitions that I have seen when it comes to cohabitation. There are a lot of people who don’t get remarried just so they can keep getting alimony. Why should someone have all the benefits of being married and still get alimony?

Most if not all of the attorneys seem to think that reform is needed and will happen soon. Florida has tried to reform their alimony laws for several years. Let's hope for some tangible progress in 2016.

Sadly Minnesota seems stuck in the dark ages when it comes to justice in the divorce system.
