First District Court Reverses Lump Sum Award and Denial of Permanent Periodic Alimony

The First District Court released an opinion today in Sellers v. Sellers in which the lower tribunal was reversed both for denying permanent periodic alimony and for evidently granting lump sum alimony instead in the form of the Husband’s share of the marital home.  No findings were made justifying the lump sum alimony, and after a long term marriage in which the Wife had not worked in fourteen years the Wife appeared to be entitled to permanent periodic alimony.  Both rulings were found to be interrelated, and both were reversed as such.
