Florida Legislature Advances Bill to Ban 'Permanent' Alimony

Ending what some called an "outdated" system with possible laws that would give judges more flexibility in allocating the amount and duration of alimony, both the Florida House and Senate have advanced measures to end what many have called, "permanent alimony."

Supporters say the change would mirror changing American culture.

"Alimony laws have been on the books in Florida for way too long without serious reform," State Rep. Ritch Workman, R-Republican, the bill's sponsor, told the House Judiciary Committee. "Things have changed in the family and so should alimony."
