Alimony Issues in Tennessee: An Update for Attorneys - On-Demand
This audio conference is now available on-demand.
Order this audio conference on-demand and get up to date on alimony issues in Tennessee.
Between 30 and 40 cases involving alimony are handed down each year by the Tennessee appellate courts. Attorneys who practice family law must be aware of the latest developments in the courts concerning alimony in order to advise clients accurately.
Issues surrounding alimony or spousal support in divorce actions can be contentious. Is one of the spouses entitled to alimony? How much alimony is appropriate? What type of alimony fits the particular situation -- alimony in futuro, transitional alimony, rehabilitative alimony, or alimony in solido or, perhaps, a combination of two types of alimony? How long should alimony be paid? When will an alimony award be modified -- up or down?
Consider these recent holdings of Tennessee appellate courts:
- In Malkin v. Malkin, husband’s retirement constituted substantial and material change in circumstances, but husband failed to prove that change in circumstances significantly diminished his financial ability to pay alimony or wife’s need for such support.
- In Wiser v. Wiser, trial court did not err in failing to terminate or suspend alimony based on fact that wife was cohabitating with another man when, although wife spent more than six days at time at man’s house in Florida at different points in time, there was no proof that wife supported man or that man supported wife.
