The future of lifetime alimony awards is hopefully in peril, particularly in light of a recent Tennessee Supreme Court decision.
In a decision that could shape how alimony is awarded, the court ruled an award of lifetime alimony to a healthy, employed wife was inappropriate.
This ruling illustrates a more modern approach to determining alimony that takes into account a wife’s occupation and earning capacity.
One of the attorneys who successfully argued the appeal on behalf of the husband is Jeffrey Levy, a mens divorce attorney based in Nashville. He talked with DadsDivorce.com editor Matt Allen about the case and its potential impacts.
