J.E.V. VS. K.V.

J.E.V. VS. K.V.


In this appeal, we reaffirm established principles governing the award of limited duration alimony, which consider the length of the marriage, the period of economic dependency during the marriage, and the skills and education necessary to return to the workforce rather than the marital lifestyle and the ability to replicate the marital lifestyle at the end of the chosen term. Once the trial judge found that the mental illness affecting the supported spouse would not interfere with her ability to obtain and sustain employment, we affirmed a ten-year limited duration alimony award. 06-21-12
