2022 Failed Alimony Reform Bill

Updated: Jul 7, 2022

On Friday, June 24, 2022, Governor DeSantis vetoed the most recent efforts of alimony reform. The bill this year, in part, would have done away with permanent alimony and set up maximum payments based on the duration of marriage. However, the main reason this bill was vetoed was due to the presumption that children should equally split their time between parents. Currently, there is no presumption and the Court must apply a best interest of the child standard in fashioning a parenting plan.

This will not be the last attempt at alimony reform and it is possible it may have passed but for the inclusion of the 50/50 timeshare presumption. Florida law currently includes provisions regarding permanent alimony.

To find out more about how alimony is determined and whether you may be a candidate for an alimony award, please schedule a consultation with Carina Leeson.
