Is Permanent Alimony Coming to an End?

Alimony has become a hot-button political issue in recent years. A bill to reform alimony worked its way through the Florida legislature earlier this year. Only the abrupt end of the legislative session following a budget impasse stalled what appeared to be the bill's "sure bet" of passage. In fact, the bill, known as HB 943, follows a similar attempt by the legislature to reform alimony in 2013, which was vetoed by Governor Scott. The new bill, however, did not propose to retroactively undo existing alimony arrangements, leading many experts to believe that, once passed, the Governor would have signed it into law.
