UPDATE: Alimony Reform 2013
On May 3rd, the 2013 Legislative Session ended without any reform to alimony laws. Governor Rick Scott vetoed SB718 and announced his decision in a letter dated May 1, 2013, to the Senate President, Don Gaetz. In the letter, Governor Scott concluded that “I cannot support this legislation because it applies retroactively and thus tampers with the settled economic expectations of many Floridians who have experienced divorce.” The governor also noted that existing Florida law provides for alimony to be adjusted under proper circumstances.
