Owens v. Owens, A-6005-00T2 (App.Div. 2003)
Sat Below: Hon. Roger W. Daley, J.S.C. (Middlesex County)
(Appearing for respondent) The trial court did not abuse its discretion in awarding $425.00 per week in permanent alimony and $127.00 per week in child support in light of the long-term (17 year) marriage, plaintiff’s serious disabilities, and defendant’s earnings history in excess of $70,00 per year. Appellant’s claim that the judgment impoverishes defendant is frivolous as it does not take into account the tax effects of an alimony award.
