Governor Rick Scott: Please sign Florida's Alimony Reform Bill when it comes to you for your signature!

    1. Petition by

      Family Law Reform

     Florida Alimony Reform legislation will finally bring structure and order to our broken and outdated permanent alimony laws.

     For the first time ever, the parties to a divorce will have formal guidelines (much like how Child Support is efficiently handled in Florida) that will outline the amount and duration of alimony awards. Our proposals also provide for significant judicial discretion to allow our Judges to address those unique situations that require an “outside the norm” solution.

     Alimony Reform bills are all about fairness, predictability, and preserving judicial discretion to protect all of Florida's families.

    2. 8,000 Alimony Reform Supporters and Growing!

      Our petition to Governor Rick Scott to support fixing our outdated Permanent Alimony laws continues to grow even before the 2014 bill is filed!

      Please continue to support this tremendous bipartisan, gender-neutral effort to finally expose the unfair practices that occur in Family Court that impact tens of thousands of Florida families each year!

      Let's see if our "Alimony Army" can't grow tenfold between now and the time our legislation lands on Governor Scott's desk! Let's give him thousands and thousands of great reasons to support fixing these broken laws and sign the bill for Florida's families!

      Contact five friends or relatives to sign the petition, and have them find five more folks.

      Together we can make this happen and help to insure that our children will never suffer as we have at the hands of a broken system that is played by predatory litigating divorce attorneys for their own financial benefit.

      Thank you for your continued support!

    4. Petition to ask Governor Scott to sign Alimony Reform Bill takes off!!!

      Thank you for signing our petition to Governor Scott which asks him to please sign the Alimony Reform Bill when it arrives on his desk!

      In only 48 hours we are well past 3,000 supporters! This is almost triple the numbers that opponents of the bill have managed to squeak out with nearly a week's head start on us!

      If everyone who signed this petition would just find five more people to sign, we will crash through the 15,000 level and build a huge wall of support for this important legislation that will be impossible for our opponents to penetrate.

      Thank you for your support of this important cause! Our work is not yet finished - we need everyone's help right now if we're going to make a difference for Florida's families!

      Remember - If we let up, we lose!

      Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

      My husband has to support our family and his prior wife to the tune of $3000.00 a month. We can't keep up and he is constantly dragged back to Florida to hearings of contempt because we can not pay. This is not willful this is impossible

      I am a lifetime alimony payer after only 16 years of marriage and 2 grown step children that I raised without my exwife recieving childsupport. There should be limits on the duration of alimony.
