Yale Trained Lawyer Gets Alimony – Judge Rules That She is Not Required to Work

| Jul 29, 2014 | Divorce |

In the recent case of Reynolds v. Reynolds, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals denied a husband’s request to overturn a trial judge’s ruling that failed to credit $30,000 to $40,000 in income to his wife for purposes of calculating alimony. The wife in Reynolds was a trained lawyer that had attended Yale Law School and earned an annual income of $120,000 in the mid 90’s. She was not working at the time of the divorce. The wife claimed health problems and pointed out that it had been a long time since she worked. She lived in a 1.5 million dollar home that had been purchased with her father and he father gave her $100,000 within two years of obtaining the divorce.
