Carter v. Carter

Utah Supreme Court

584 P.2d 904 (1978)

Facts

Norman Carter (plaintiff) and Pauline Carter (defendant) ended a 31-year-marriage. The divorce decree included an award of alimony to Pauline: $275 per month while she continued living in the marital home, $350 per month after the home was sold. Pauline was unemployed when the decree was entered. Pauline then returned to her previous career as a teacher at age 58. Norman became aware of Pauline’s change in income status and petitioned for the termination of his alimony obligation. The trial court granted the petition, but only to the extent of lowering the alimony award to $100 per month. Norman appealed. The Utah Supreme Court granted certiorari.
