Fifth District Rejects Timesharing, Rehabilitative Alimony, Attorneys Fee Award

The Fifth DCA ruled Friday in Lovell v. Lovell, and in so doing rejected several parts of the ruling below. First and foremost, the Fifth found error with the lower tribunal's ruling prohibiting the children from exposure to the Husband's new wife during timesharing, despite the lack of any evidence of detriment from such contact. Next, the Court rejected an eight year, four thousand dollar a month rehabilitative alimony award (but not the award itself) as needing a clearer plan for rehabilitation. Finally, based on the assets distributed to the Wife, the Court reversed the attorneys' fee award below.
