Facts

Mr. Boemio (plaintiff) and Ms. Seixas (defendant) were married in 1985. The couple had two children. Boemio was employed by the Federal Reserve Board and held two master’s degrees. Seixas did not complete college and worked as an administrative assistant. After being married almost 20 years, Boemio moved out in 2006. Boemio filed for divorce, and Seixas filed a counterclaim seeking property, child support, and alimony. The trial court considered the couple’s income disparity and sought to help Seixas maintain a lifestyle comparable to the middle-class lifestyle that she had become accustomed to over the course of the marriage. The trial court considered each of the 12 statutory alimony factors, but also looked to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) guidelines for assistance in crafting an appropriate alimony award. Following a two-day trial, the trial court found that Seixas was entitled to $3,000 per month in permanent alimony. Boemio appealed.
