Second District Court Reverses Alimony Award

The Second District Court of Appeal reversed yesterday in Doganiero v. Doganiero, finding merit in only one of the issues raised.  The lower court granted the Former Wife a sixteen year period of alimony, but made no finding despite facts suggesting the propriety of permanent alimony that made clear why only durational alimony was given.  On remand the lower court was instructed to explore permanent periodic alimony, and to set forth its rationale for any award of alimony.  In addition, the alimony awarded was for $100.00 per month, and the lower court was instructed on remand that any type of alimony awarded “must be of a legally sufficient amount.”
