BOCA RATON, Fla. - Sept. 30, 2022 - PRLog -- The timeline for alimony reform in the State of Florida is a long, complicated one. Historically in Florida there have been different types of alimony such as bridge, the gap, rehabilitative, durational, and then permanent. What Florida did a number of years ago was they actually put in the statute, they clearly defined what is a short term, a mid length and a long term marriage. One thing is for certain is that no one wants to pay permanent lifetime alimony.

When asked by Matthew Brickman whether she was a proponent of alimony reform, Andrea Reid's response was very clear as heard in the following segment:

In addition to supporting the push to end permanent alimony she mentioned, "The word permanent in the statute is really a misnomer. Because it's modifiable and has been in all sorts of cases."

Matthew Brickman made the clear distinction between modifiable agreements and those that have the term "non-modifiable" which makes it thus so.

Mr. Brickman has pointed out that back in 2016, the House and the Senate both passed alimony reform, but the governor vetoed it. The reason why the governor vetoed it at the time was because as most politicians do, whether on a state level or on a federal level, they usually stick things in a particular bill that should not be there.

For example, on a big scale in the federal government, they may do something for roads and infrastructure and they will throw in things like abortion. Although one has nothing do with the other but it's something that has been done because they know it will result in a veto for the entire bill.

Andrea drove home the point that every divorce should be looked at on a case-by-case basis stating, "Every family has their own DNA."
