Florida Lawmakers Pass Bill to End Permanent Alimony

The Florida House on Thursday passed a bill (SB 718) that sets limits on the amount of alimony and how long someone would receive financial support from an ex-spouse.

Judges still will have latitude to make adjustment. The bill already passed the Senate.

It would make it harder to get alimony in short-term marriages and would generally prevent alimony payments from lasting longer than one-half of the length of the marriage.
