Will Florida change its Alimony and Custody Laws in 2016?

During the 2015 legislative session, it came close – now it appears our legislators are at it again!  So… what is being considered in 2016?  Two separate pieces of legislation:

  1. Ending the ability for a spouse who has been in a “long-term” marriage to receive permanent alimony (for the remainder of their life); and
  2. A legislative push for judges to implement 50-50 time sharing between divorcing parents.

Stay tuned for further updates on the status of these bills!
