A new alimony law went into effect in Florida on July 1, 2023, making significant changes that will affect divorcing couples. The CS/HB 1301 and CS/SB 1416 bills significantly change the law regarding the establishment and modification of alimony obligations. The new law applies to all pending cases and cases filed after July 1. It will apply to all timesharing discussions in paternity and divorce cases, as well as in modification cases.
The bill eliminates permanent alimony as a type of alimony available to be awarded in pending cases and cases filed after July 1, 2023. All forms of alimony remaining may be combined. To learn more, read our blog about how this new law deals with the duration of marriages.
