If you are getting divorced, one of the last things you probably want to do is hand over any more money to your ex than you absolutely have to. This is why it can be so upsetting to have to pay spousal support, or alimony.
Florida residents may be interested to hear about the case of former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem. He currently risks facing contempt charges over his failure to pay what now allegedly totals nearly $400,000. His case brings to light the very real possibility of fines and jail time that anyone who fails to pay child support may face.
Changes might be coming regarding alimony payments in Florida, if proposed bills pass both the House and Senate. The proposed changes, however, faced opposition last year and did not pass, due to an equal parenting time clause. The House might be voting first on the updated bill and it would then go to the Senate.
