WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2015 The Senate Judiciary Committee initially approved Senate Bill 1248 on a unanimous vote that would end permanent alimony in an effort to fundamentally change Florida's alimony system.
The bill would determine a formula for the length and amount of alimony while also creating a "50-50" child-sharing arrangement. The bill passed both The House and The Senate, only to be vetoed by Gov. Rick Scott.
Matthew Brickman recently released a video on his YouTube Channel explaining his point, "I did 282 mediations in 2015 and I got a lot of feedback from people concerning the alimony form. I believe that alimony reform should die in the state of Florida - most people are simply looking for additional monies to supplement child support. It's the child support calculations that need a massive overhaul."

Mr. Brickman went on to make the following points:
Child and Timesharing should be separate bills.
Rehaul child support based on a daily basis within specific age brackets.
Child support should reflect actual cost it takes to raise a child.
Many people are misinformed with tender years doctrine that presumes a "tender" years (generally regarded as the age of four and under), the mother should have custody of the child. Fathers are just as important.
