The old current Florida alimony rule takes away from disability persons for healthy working people and does not protect wounded warriors.  I am a 100% disabled combat veteran that was involuntarily medically discharged for combat related injuries.  I pay $2,500 a month from my only source of income to a healthy working person for life (permanent alimony). My only income is disability.  End permanent alimony and/or delete disability from Florida Statue 61.046 (below) income definition.

Fl Statue ​61.046 Definitions.—As used in this chapter, the term:​

(8) “Income” means any form of payment to an individual, regardless of source, including, but not limited to: wages, salary, commissions and bonuses, compensation as an independent contractor, worker’s compensation, disability benefits, annuity and retirement benefits, pensions, dividends, interest, royalties, trusts, and any other payments, made by any person, private entity, federal or state government, or any unit of local government. United States Department of Veterans Affairs disability benefits and reemployment assistance or unemployment compensation, as defined in chapter 443, are excluded from this definition of income except for purposes of establishing an amount of support.
