Court of Appeals of Kentucky.
HAMMONS v. HAMMONS.
June 16, 1925.
ACTION: Affirmed.


Appeal from Circuit court, Knox County.
Action for divorce by Lula Hammons against G. W. Hammons.
Judgment for plaintiff, and defendant appeals.

CLAY, J.
Lula Hammons sued her husband, G. W. Hammons, for divorce and alimony. The divorce was granted, and she was awarded alimony in the sum of $1,000. The defendant has appealed.

Appellant insists that no alimony should have been allowed. It is unnecessary to review the evidence. As we are not at liberty to reverse a decree of divorce and restore the parties to their former status, we have adopted the rule that, where the wife has no estate, and is granted a divorce on her application, alimony will follow as a matter of right, unless it is made to appear that she was guilty of such misconduct or other fault as would authorize the court to refuse an allowance. In this case no such showing was made, and no reason appears why the small allowance of $1,000 should not be upheld.

Judgment affirmed.

Ky.App. 1925.
