Family Law and Divorce Decisions

Aug. 19th 2013

County Courthouse Steps Afternoon Light

Recently, the State Appellate court released a number of important Family Law Decisions that could affect divorce in the state of Connecticut. If you are considering filing for divorce, you should familiarize yourself with these laws so that you can be fully prepared for how they may apply to your divorce.

  • AC31145 – Gong v. Huang (“The defendant . . . cross appeals from the judgment of the trial court dissolving his marriage to the plaintiff . . . claiming, inter alia, that the court abused its discretion when it: (1) failed to address his motion for modification of the pendente lite alimony order in a timely manner; (2) failed to consider the plaintiff’s dissipation of marital assets when it rendered its final judgment; (3) did not hold the plaintiff in contempt regarding her failure to maintain the mortgage and common charge payments of the parties’ Norwalk condominium (condominium) and her failure to return his personal property; (4) failed to modify the visitation agreement entered into by the parties; and (5) ordered the defendant to compensate the plaintiff $5000 for the disparity in value between their automobiles.”)
  • AC31842 – McRae v. McRae (“The defendant in this marital dissolution matter . . . appeals from the judgment of the trial court dissolving his marriage to the plaintiff . . . and entering related financial orders. On appeal, the defendant claims that the court improperly (1) assessed the value of his business and (2) awarded the plaintiff the cash equivalent of one-half of the value of his business in addition to alimony generated solely by that business.”)
  • AC32327 – Nowacki v. Nowacki (“The defendant . . . appeals from various postjudgment orders of the trial court following the dissolution of his marriage to the plaintiff . . . . “)
