Alimony reform hits the big screen

On Behalf of | Feb 2, 2014 | Alimony |

It is not uncommon for men and women in Ohio to marry because they love one another and want to stay united throughout the duration if their lives. When a couple is contemplating marriage or is newly married, it may be difficult to imagine the possibility of divorce. The reality, however, is that there are many couple in the United States that end up divorcing. One divorce topic that is often a concern is alimony.

Spousal support has been around for generations, but it is something that husbands and wives can be sorely divided on. It has been reported previously that some women consider alimony antiquated and even insulting. In a day where women are educated and work at levels that are equal to or exceed their male counterparts, the notion that they need support payments from their ex may be offensive. In Florida, some people in favor of alimony reform support a newly released documentary film, Divorce Corp.

The film paints grim a picture of divorce, showing the indecency of people who are without custody and how they extract money, reveals how some judges rule without keeping the best interests of the families at heart, and how children are separated from their homes and families. Many think the intended purpose of the film is to strengthen the argument that divorce and family law reform are needed.

Couples that are thinking about divorce have a variety of topics consider before the decree is final. When they have questions along the way, it may be helpful for them to speak with an experienced attorney.
