01/30/13 - Wednesday's Topical Currents looks at the nationwide campaign for alimony reform. Most states—including Florida—haven’t had a meaningful review of alimony since the 1950s. Reformers say times have changed: many women now lead the way in the workforce and are primary breadwinners. “Second Wives” bemoan that their earnings can complement the alimony paid to their new husband’s former spouse. Guests/links: Alan Frisher, co-director of Florida Alimony Reform; Debbie Leff Israel, founder of Second Wives Club; and family law and divorce attorney Barry Finkel.
