Alimony reform creates uncertainty for divorcing women

 

A few months ago, legislators in Massachusetts passed the Alimony Reform act of 2011, updating the Commonwealth’s alimony laws.

Now, citizens’ groups in Florida and New Jersey are pushing for the same kinds of changes in those states.

Judge Eugene Hyman, retired Superior Court Santa Clara, California says this kind of reform can really make it impossible for many divorcing women to move on financially.
