Florida Alimony Reform Act Vetoed!

There has been a lot of debate about the Florida Alimony Reform Act that passed both the state House and Senate.  The bill would have eliminated permanent alimony but also create a presumption in favor of a 50/50 timesharing schedule for a child.  The governor vetoed the bill and it appears that there will not be enough votes to override the veto.  As of now, the law will remain the same and permanent alimony will still be a presumption in long term marriages.  Please contact an experienced Tampa alimony attorney for more information.
