I’m an attorney in Miami who has practiced family law for many years. I represent men and women seeking a divorce with or without children. I’m also a guardian ad litem. It is obvious that SB 718 is being presented to protect the paying spouse and not the one in need after many years in the marriage. Having represented both the payor and the payee, I know it is necessary to find the equitable measure between the parties. That’s why the family court is an equity court. Marriage and children cannot all be categorized into a single statute; one size does not fit all.
