Case is Remanded Due to Insufficient Reasons for a Modified Alimony

Case is Remanded Due to Insufficient Reasons for a Modified Alimony

Posted By Owenby Law, P.A. || 15-Feb-2016

Recently, a case involving a modified alimony has been remanded. The former husband challenged a final order, which modified an alimony to an increased amount. He states that the trial court did not supply sufficient reasons for the modified alimony amount that is to be awarded to his ex-wife.

Currently, there is no explanation for the increased amount, and it is not apparent as to how the trial court reached that decision. As a result, the case must be reversed back to the trial court so that an explanation may be provided.

In this particular case, the amount of the alimony can only be increased if the former wife was legally responsible for supporting hers and her ex-husband’s children. However, because the children are considered of adult age, the law does not require the former wife to provide financial assistance to the adult children, regardless of whether the former wife has provided financial assistance to her children while they attend college.

The case will continue until a final decision is reached.
