Senate Bill 193S is a bipartisan bill that makes sense. If you are a domestic abuser, you shouldn’t be getting alimony payments from the person you abused. The bill prohibits an individual from receiving alimony who is convicted of committing a violent felony, where the victim is their spouse or a child under the age of 18 of either party to the divorce or annulment proceeding.
Under current Delaware law an individual can abuse their partner or child and may still be awarded interim alimony or alimony. This Act mandates that such an unjust result shall be entirely prohibited.
