The Trial Courts have recently said the following in cases where Mark S. Peters was trial counsel:
ALIMONY: The Florida Legislature has made two recent attempts to significantly modify alimony in Florida. The first Legislative change in 2014 was vetoed by Governor Scott. The second bill died without passage when the State House abruptly ended Session in 2015, without passage of the Alimony Reform Bill. None of the Special Legislative Sessions thereafter dealt with the Bill.
The overwhelming majority of Family Law cases involve a dissolution of marriage. Florida is a "No Fault" dissolution state, which means the only grounds a spouse needs to end a marriage is that the marriage is irretrievably broken. Say those words under oath before a Judge, and the marriage ends. When people talk about uncontested and contested dissolution of marriage cases, it's not whether the marriage ends that is being contested. What is contested is where do the children sleep at night and who gets what in the way of assets, money and debts.
