Overhaul of alimony law wins praise

Alimony Reform Bill Hearings on March 19

Monday March 19 was a huge day for Connecticut’s alimony reform movement. Eleven people, many of them members of CTAR, testified movingly before the Joint Committee on the Judiciary, in Hartford, in favor of Raised Bill No. 5509. The day was very long – and stretched well into the night.

The committee did not vote on the bill yet; it has until April 2nd to do that. Between now then, we must contact committee members with our stories, especially where we are constituents, and we must get more alimony payers and their families involved in writing to legislators NOW. This is how a bill becomes a law: citizens take action.


Raised Bill # 5509

A bill to reform alimony has been introduced in the Connecticut House, Raised Bill No. 5509. Hearings on this bill will be held on Monday March 19, in the Joint Committee on the Judiciary at 1pm. Go to our WRITE YOUR LEGISLATOR tab and follow instructions on contacting your two Connecticut legislators - your senator and your House representative to express your support for Raised Bill NO. 5509.


Raised Bill # 5509

We are pleased to announce Raised Bill 5509. In this legislative session of the Connecticut General Assembly.



Wall Street Journal on New York Alimony law

Steve Hitner on Alimony

(CNN) -- My marriage ended in 1995 after 23 years. My two daughters were adults. I knew I would be required to pay alimony, split the assets and provide health insurance for a reasonable period of time. But a marriage that had been difficult for many years was finally over, or so I thought. I didn't know I was about to enter the twilight zone of alimony-without-end in Massachusetts.

New law stops injustice of 'alimony without end'
