Family Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC44699 - Bialik v. Bialik ("The plaintiff, Jodi Bialik, appeals from the postjudgment ruling of the trial court granting the motion of the defendant, Scott Bialik, for a modification of his alimony obligation. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the court erred in (1) failing to consider the impact of funds received by the defendant's dental practice from the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP); see 15 U.S.C. § 636 (a) (36); and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program; see 15 U.S.C. § 636 (b) (2); both of which are administered by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), in calculating the defendant's annual adjusted gross earnings, as defined in the parties' separation agreement, and (2) its treatment of disability insurance premiums paid by the defendant's business. We agree with the plaintiff and, accordingly, reverse in part the judgment of the trial court.")
