Around 11 AM on Tuesday, we learned from National Parents Organization leader in Florida Troy Matson that the omnibus family law reform bill that includes alimony reform and the premise of equal time (CS/CS/SB 668) passed the FL Senate last week, and was just passed by the Florida House by a vote of 74-38. It will now go to Governor Scott for (hopefully) his signature.
Troy states, “The legislation calls for a ‘premise that a minor child should spend approximately equal amounts of time with each parent.’ Additionally, the bill calls for a judge to produce written findings to support the parenting plan s/he is ordering.” The bill also includes important alimony reform provisions.
National Parents Organization continues to advance shared parenting around the country!
