Family Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Greenlee, Rebecca


AC 45824 - Wethington v. Wethington ("The defendant, Joshua Wethington, appeals from the judgment of the trial court dissolving his marriage to the plaintiff, Esther Wethington. On appeal, the defendant claims that the court improperly (1) granted several motions for contempt pendente lite filed by the plaintiff, (2) distributed the parties’ assets, and (3) denied several of his postjudgment motions to reargue. We reverse the judgment of the trial court only with respect to the court’s (1) denial of one of the defendant’s motions to reargue and (2) grants of two of the plaintiff’s contempt motions, in whole or in part, insofar as the court adjudicated the defendant in contempt of the automatic orders pursuant to Practice Book § 25-5 (b) for actions that he committed before the automatic orders had become effective against him. We affirm the judgment in all other respects.")
