Family Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC44407 - Simms v. Zucco (“On appeal, the defendant claims that the court improperly (1) determined that the plaintiff’s service of the notice of her motion to modify alimony was legally sufficient, (2) opened the judgment of dissolution and modified the defendant’s alimony obligation in violation of the automatic bankruptcy stay imposed by 11 U.S.C. § 362 as a result of the defendant’s chapter 13 bankruptcy petition, and (3) increased his alimony obligation and ordered retroactive alimony resulting in a substantial arrearage. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.”)
