Promotes New Legislation
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida Alimony Reform co-director Alan Frisher of Melbourne wants to change Florida’s alimony laws so that they are fair to both genders.
Many states haven’t pursued meaningful review of alimony legislation since the 1950s.
Frisher believes times have changed with many women now leading the way in the workforce and primary household earners.
He said current laws heap immense hardship upon those who must support an ex-spouse until he dies or she dies.
Too many alimony payers are forced into insolvency, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and often must repeatedly return to divorce court, when life circumstances change and they need to modify payments, according to Frisher.
Florida Alimony Reform is optimistic legislation can be passed this year to modify and modernize alimony in the Sunshine State.
