Controversial Alimony and Child-Custody Proposals in Florida

Controversial Alimony and Child-Custody Proposals in Florida

The Palm Beach Post reported on Tuesday that there may be many changes on their way regarding alimony and child custody in Florida. Governor Rick Scott received legislation last week that would essentially end alimony. Judges would then have to use a formula they would use to calculate the length and amount of said alimony payments. Another controversial effect of this law would grant equal custody in child custody cases with the idea that children should spend the same amount of time with both parents. The Florida National Organization for Women and the state’s League of Women Voters is protesting the proposed legislation.
