Jandreau v. LaChance
Evidence in divorce action did not support trial court’s decision to deny spousal support to wife; wife’s income would not be sufficient to meet her living expenses, even during the three years that the child support order remained in effect, dependency exemption allocation improved husband’s financial position vis-à-vis wife, husband earned nearly $88,000 annually, which was more than six times the $14,212 per year that wife received in personal social security disability insurance benefits, and court’s equal property distribution did nothing to ameliorate the inequality in the parties’ economic positions.
