We’ve been discussing in our last posts the topic of alimony, particularly permanent alimony and an ongoing attempt in Florida to do away with these awards. We left off last time discussing changes a current proposal would make to alimony awards in Florida and the arguments for and against these changes.
In our last post, we began discussing some of the particulars of state law as it pertains to alimony awards, particularly permanent alimony. As we noted, awards of permanent alimony are not common, but they can and do occur. Some Florida lawmakers are seeking to change that with a bill that would get rid of permanent alimony in Florida.
