Second District Reverses Equitable Distribution

In Fotinos v. Fotinos, the Second District Court of Appeal released an opinion Wednesday which affirmed on all issues, but reversed the equitable distribution award.  This was in light of the Court’s failure to make findings supporting an unequal distribution of assets and debts, its finding that a home was marital, but essential grant of that property only to the Husband through exclusive use and possession, as well as the Court’s permitting the Husband eighteen years to pay back his share of equitable distribution to the Wife.
