      Truth About Florida Alimony

      Tallahassee, FL

SB 718 and HB 231 seek to make significant, far reaching and harmful changes to Florida's current alimony statutes. These one-sided bills favor alimony payors, ignore the rights of alimony recipients, will eliminate stay-at-home parents and be destructive to Florida’s families and children.

      i know to many fathers that want to be involved in their childs life and the mother will not allow it cause she has that control over the father but not thinking about the childs feelings but only theirself. instead a father must pay child support for their child and still has no legal right to their child anything its wrong how people can tell you that you have no right to your own child!!!!

      Please VETO this. No young couple could, in reality, chose to have one parent stay home and raise their children with no financial safety. It takes away choice. It also would eliminate the choice to home school. This is so completely unfair to the choices the American family has and should have. There are plenty of men and women who want to raise their children and work within the home, but they need security to do so. Alimony gives security for that choice. Home education has proved very successful as a choice as well. We need to require that there be financial support when we choose to have children. It's morally unsound to let a parent (mom or dad) "take off" with the financial gains in a No Fault state. This bill will destroy the entire idea of marriage and raising children. Please VETO this bill.

      Because Fort Myers judge let mom leave state without permission, ultimately punishing dad and child to have a meaningful and close to having a 50/50 relationship.
