WANDA GAIL SANDLIN v. GEORGE SAMUEL SANDLIN Court:TCA Attorneys: Allison M. Barker, Crossville, Tennessee, for the Appellant, George Samuel Sandlin. Henry D. Fincher, Cookeville, Tennessee, for the Appellee, Wanda G. Sandlin. Judge: FARMER First Paragraph: Wife filed for divorce alleging irreconcilable differences or, in the alternative, that Husband was guilty of inappropriate marital conduct. The trial court granted Wife an absolute divorce on the basis of Husband's stipulated inappropriate marital conduct. The trial court further ordered a distribution of marital property and debt, awarded wife alimony in futuro and attorney's fees, and required Husband to maintain a life insurance policy to secure his alimony obligation. Husband appeals. We affirm the award of alimony in futuro, distribution of marital property and debt, and the award of attorney's fees as alimony in solido. However, we vacate the requirement to provide life insurance and remand. http://www.tba.org/tba_files/TCA/sandinwandagail.wpd
