Welcome to Vermont Alimony Reform

Write Your Legislator

Writing your state Senator or Representative is the most effective way of communicating that there is a serious problem with alimony in Vermont and the need for reform by the Legislature. Positive letters that define your experiences with alimony that clearly state how alimony has impacted your life are most effective. Our first task is to identify to the legislature the problems with the existing alimony laws in Vermont. Our next task is to ask them to establish a task force that includes all impacted parties of alimony. This would include Legislators, Judges, lawyers, and payors. Once the taskforce has completed their work, we can then submit Legislation to update and change the existing alimony laws to create a system whereby there is consistency, predictability, and fairness for all parties involved with regard to alimony.

Below we have listed the pertinent committees with links to the members webpage (click their name).
