Could the end of permanent alimony – or spousal support – be coming to Florida? Many experts say yes.
Fox News reports that Florida could become one of the first states in the country to overhaul the alimony system by ending life-long payments and allowing judges to retroactively change existing agreements. The outcome will be determined after the governor reviews the pending legislation.
The bill, sponsored by Republicans, passed the Legislature last week and now sits on the Governor's desk. Florida Republican Rep. Ritch Workman said he sponsored the legislation in his state because he saw the need for better guidelines in awarding alimony payments.
