PLEASE ACT NOW and sign this online petition to have Governor Rick Scott Sign Florida’s Alimony Reform Bill.
We have created this petition asking the Governor to sign the Alimony Reform Bill once it passes the Florida House Floor. You can sign this in less than 2 minutes on your computer, phone, or tablet. This is Florida Family Law’s response to the Family Law Section’s leader (see her email below) who has now initiating a last minute desperate campaign asking the Governor to veto the Bill. Please SIGN AND SHARE and TELL all your friends and family members to sign it.
Below are parts of an email sent by the FLS leader telling its 3500+ attorneys to sign a petition to have the Governor VETO the Bill:
“Dear Family Law Section Members,
Be aware! Senate Bill 718 passed the Senate on Thursday, April 4, 2013. It will definitely pass the House AND THE GOVERNOR WILL SIGN IT UNLESS WE ALL MOBILIZE TO STOP IT!!!….We have created a petition that you, your friends, your colleagues, your acquaintances, and your clients can all sign for us to send to the Governor. Please download the petition, print it, and gather as many signatures as you can. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS EMAIL. THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE. If you agree with the Executive Council of the Family Law Section that a presumption of equal timesharing in every case is bad for Florida’s families, and that the drastic rewriting of Florida’s alimony laws AND retroactive application is just plain WRONG, please share this link with your colleagues, forensic accountants, mental health professionals, judges, mediators, clients, friends, and others who will be negatively impacted by this legislation. LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO STOP THIS BILL! THANK YOU!! Carin Porras, Chair, Family Law Section “
