New Alimony Bill passes Senate


SB 718 has been passed by the Florida Senate. This bill bans permanent alimony and dictates that a Judge must order 50/50 timesharing (custody) unless there are extenuating circumstances. This is a substantial change to the current law. The Florida House of Representatives is considering a similar bill named HB 231.

The next step is for the Bill to be either signed or vetoed by the Governor.
