AC44387 - Fogel v. Fogel (Dissolution of marriage; postjudgment proceedings; motion to modify alimony; whether trial court properly granted defendant's motion for modification of alimony; "In this matter arising from the dissolution of the parties' marriage, the plaintiff, Angela Fogel, appeals from the judgment of the trial court granting a motion to modify alimony filed by the defendant, Rafael Fogel. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court erred in (1) finding that the defendant had been involuntarily terminated from his employment, (2) declining to consider "phantom income" for purposes of determining the defendant's alimony obligation, and (3) failing to consider all of the factors set forth in General Statutes ยง 46b-82 in deciding whether to modify the defendant's alimony obligation. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
