Nelida Gold v. Steven Gold, 11-P-112

The Wife appeals a supplemental judgment of divorce which, among other things, ordered child support to be paid to the Husband in the amount of $170 per week and alimony to be paid to the Wife in the amount of $170 per week.  After trial, the judge found that the parties enjoyed an upper middle class station in life as the Wife was a flight attendant and the Husband owned 17% in a family insurance agency.  The Husband has legal and physical custody of the minor child.  However, the Appeals Court determined that the child support order was not supported by the record and the trial judge made no specific findings on Wife’s needs to support the Alimony Award.  The judgment as to child support and alimony was vacated.
