Florida Legislature consider changes to state alimony laws

On January 12th, 2016, the Florida State Legislature heard a reading of HB 455, seeking changes to the way judges calculate the terms and conditions of alimony in a divorce proceeding. The bill is sponsored by Republican State Representative Colleen Burton of Lakeland. The Florida Legislature has unsuccessfully tried twice in the past three years to modify Florida's existing laws regarding spousal maintenance. Perhaps this time will be different.

The month of January is all about having a fresh start. With a new year comes the opportunity to set goals and let go of the negative things in your life. If you are reading this, then your marriage may be one thing that you may be ready to let go of in 2016.

How is alimony awarded in Florida?

When it comes to the 2016 legislative session, political experts are already predicting that one of the hot-button issues that state lawmakers will more than likely be debating in Tallahassee over the coming months is alimony reform.

Some financial considerations for those looking to divorce in 2016

For many people, the New Year is about much more than just losing weight, quitting smoking or pursuing other avenues of self-improvement. Indeed, it's about finding the courage to pursue major life changes like embarking down an entirely new career path, starting a family or even ending an unhappy marriage.
