DeSantis signs landmark law banning permanent alimony
After more than a decade of thwarted attempts to reform alimony in the state of Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis is signing a landmark bill banning permanent alimony.
The Republican presidential candidate had previously vetoed an iteration of the law that some said would make the provision retroactive to prior alimony agreements. He thought that provision was unconstitutional. But a senior DeSantis administration official said the governor is satisfied that this latest version would not apply retroactively, thus passing state constitutional muster.
