“I have been divorced for 5 years, receiving alimony in the State of Florida. I have been contemplating moving out of Florida, but a friend tells me that the alimony will be stopped if I move, is this true?”

No. Your alimony will not be stopped simply because you moved. It may be possible that it could be stopped for other related factors, such as if you are moving to get re-married, or to take a job which pays enough that you no longer require alimony.
