Redden v. Redden, 2020 UT App 22 (Feb. 13, 2020)

The trial court made the payor spouse responsible for student and vehicle loans, but then disallowed the loan obligations when considering the payor spouse’s ability to pay alimony.  Reversing and remanding for further consideration, the court of appeals held that the trial court exceeded its discretion by declining to disallow loans allocated to the payor spouse for alimony purposes, primarily because its decision failed to explain the bases for its decision.
