Fall 2017 Family Law Newsletter: Does a divorcing spouse get credit in a property division for paying household bills?

The recently published Fall 2017 Family Law newsletter discusses important new developments in domestic relations matters, including whether a divorcing spouse is entitled to a credit in a property division for paying household bills while the divorce is pending.

The newsletter, published by partner Gary Owen Todd, also analyzes two recent court rulings.  In one, a father was not required to pay child support to an unemployed adult child.  The second ruling held a spouse in contempt for failing to satisfy a lump-sum payment despite a waiver of "spousal support" in the divorce decree.

Mr. Todd, a Founding Partner at the firm, is recognized locally and nationally as a preeminent family law attorney concentrating on domestic relations and probate litigation. He has successfully negotiated, mediated and tried numerous family law issues at the trial court and appellate levels.
