2020 Alimony Reform Bill has Been Filed
We are excited to announce that an Alimony Reform bill has been filed in the House by State Representative Alex Andrade from Pensacola. Be sure to follow House Bill 843 HERE.
Not all marriages last, but that does not mean families should go to war. At Florida Family Fairness, we support legislation that will bring families together, not tear them apart. It is time that Florida changes its antiquated system and adopts fair alimony laws that create uniform and consistent standards for judgments across the state.
As a completely volunteer run organization, we are spearheading Florida’s 2020 alimony reform movement. We have drafted a comprehensive bill, hired a top-tier lobby team and will secure legislative sponsors and seek to turn our bill into law.
It’s Time for Change
Florida is the largest of just six states that still has permanent alimony. Our permanent alimony laws require the payer to pay alimony until the ex-spouse dies or remarries.
Florida Family Fairness supports legislation that represents the modern family unit and encourages self-sufficiency for both parties.
Divorce is difficult, but it is even more difficult when there are archaic laws in place that benefit divorce attorneys and leave families as the victims.
Donors like you will make our efforts successful during the 2020 legislative session. Please consider donating today or make check donations out to: Florida Family Fairness, Inc. and mail to the address below.
