GOP's plan to eliminate tax breaks for alimony payers

While anyone can go through a complex divorce, many agree that nothing complicates the divorce process much like money does. Because of that, many couples in Florida going through a high asset divorce are faced with many difficult and overwhelming decisions when it comes to their finances during and after dissolution.
