Alimony Reform Summit on August 17, 2013
Family Law Reform’s first alimony reform summit was a huge success. People came from as far away as San Diego, California to be informed, ask questions, and get answers to our strategies for success in 2014.
Both Senator Kelli Stargell and Representative Ritch Workman were motivating speakers who declared their dedication to our cause. They promised to work very hard with the legislators as well as with the Governor to get us the reform we need, while still removing retroactivity from the proposed bill. There are workarounds to the current proposal that can still allow current alimony, as well as future alimony payers relief.
They understand that this is an extremely emotional issue, but realize that calm, rational and purposeful change can and should occur. They will remain extremely supportive to our cause.
All in all, our Summit accomplished everything that it was set out to do. It educated, it informed, and it instructed our members exactly how they can help. We raised enough money to help pay for the Summit, and, with your continued financial help and involvement, we will continue our movement toward alimony reform for the 2014 legislative session.

Here are some quotes about the book:
It was an honest portrayal of a guy trying to make a difference in a system seen by most as outdated and self-serving. While the battle is not yet over, Alan Frisher has taken up the cause of Family Law Reform in a well written, accurate journal documenting the personal pain and experiences he has endured along the way.
~~Alan Elkins, Esq. Family Law Attorney
Alan’s realistic and pragmatic take on the judicial system of divorce reveals how dysfunctional and antiquated our family divorce system has become and how it allows for an entitlement attitude for the recipient of alimony at the financial and emotional expense of the bread winner. Learn from his experience and expertise to protect yourself from litigation before it’s too late.
~~Scott Martin, CFP, CDFA, and Author of Design Your Divorce
A must read for anyone in the family law system, whether participant, bystander, advocate, or Judge. Alan Frisher’s account of his personal experience in family court and his tremendous efforts to change laws to protect others from his experience is detailed and moving.
~~Lori Barkus, Esq. Family Law Attorney
