Representative Ritch Workman will Sponsor Alimony Reform Bill in the Florida House
Senator Kelli Stargel will Sponsor Alimony Reform Bill in the Florida Senate
No stranger to the State Capital, Senator Stargel served the people of District 64 as a Florida State Representative from 2008-2012.
We anticipate that Senator Stargel will see significant interest from her fellow senators on both sides of the aisle in serving as co-sponsors of this important piece of legislation.
The current alimony laws in Florida allow an alimony recipient to go after a new spouse's income should the alimony payer ever choose to remarry. It's called an "alimony modification", and it can be granted since there's now more family income. This effectively results in preventing people from remarrying a new spouse due to the very real threat of the alimony payer being dragged back into court by their former spouse years after the divorce was supposedly settled.
Florida Alimony Reform believes that alimony should work like child support - a fixed amount for a fixed duration. No one fights about child support. Alimony should not be any different. The bill that Senator Stargel is sponsoring will help to end outrageous legal fees and promote fairness for all of Florida's families.
