Family Law Appellate Court opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC40723 - Callahan v. Callahan ("In this postjudgment dissolution matter, the plaintiff, Jill Gilbert Callahan, appeals from the judgments of the trial court, rendered on remand from this court, granting a motion to modify alimony filed by the defendant, James Callahan, and issuing additional postjudgment orders. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court (1) erred in granting the defendant's motion to modify alimony, (2) abused its discretion in modifying alimony retroactively, (3) lacked the legal authority to suspend the defendant's alimony payments to her as a condition of granting her motion for a continuance, (4) erred in determining the effective date of financial orders that this court mandated be reinstated, (5) erred in ordering her to execute certain documents to transfer her interest in the companies owned by the parties, and (6) improperly concluded that it lacked subject matter jurisdiction to require the defendant to endorse two insurance checks. We dismiss as moot the plaintiff's third claim regarding the suspension of alimony payments and affirm the judgments of the trial court in all other respects.")
