When HB 943 was filed back in February, some wondered if it would finally be the push Florida needed to reform our state's alimony laws and do away with permanent spousal maintenance. The problem with this legal obligation, some argued, was that it didn't give alimony receivers enough of an incentive to return to work, thereby financially crippling payers for the rest of their lives. It was a plight some hoped state legislatures would take to heart and correct.
Back in February, we pointed out to our readers here in Brandon the fact that there are two different types of surrogacy: traditional and gestational. In the post, we outlined each type of surrogacy and explained that choosing surrogacy may require couples to seek help from a legal professional knowledgeable in family law. Today we’d like to explain why.
