How old should a marriage be to qualify for permanent alimony? Go through Gnall v. Gnall to differentiate between permanent and limited alimony.
Laura Morgan, Family Law Consultant
Parties’ fifteen-year marriage was not short-term, a conclusion which precluded consideration of an award of limited duration alimony; therefore, the trial judge erred when he rejected permanent alimony because of the misconception that parties’ fifteen-year marriage was short-term and would not support a permanent alimony award.
