ELIZABETH JANE KNIZLEY v. ANDREW CARLTON KNIZLEY

ELIZABETH JANE KNIZLEY v. ANDREW CARLTON KNIZLEY
M2018-00490-COA-R3-CV

Finding agreement in the midst of a divorce can be difficult, but leading up to and during the trial in their divorce, husband and wife entered into certain stipulations.  Among those, according to wife, was a stipulation that she would receive alimony in futuro of some amount.  Following the trial, the trial court awarded wife transitional alimony.  On appeal, wife argues that the court improperly created a dispute when none existed by ignoring the parties’ stipulation.  For his part, husband argues that parties cannot stipulate to a type of alimony and, in any event, there was no such stipulation.  After a review of the record, we affirm.
