Family Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Booth, George


AC44312 - J. Y. v. M. R. (Custody; "In this custody dispute, the defendant, M. R., appeals from the decisions of the trial court adjudicating several postjudgment motions for modification of custody and visitation orders. On appeal, the defendant claims that the court improperly (1) issued interim orders pending its issuance of final orders vis-a-vis two motions for modification filed in 2018 and 2019, respectively, (2) issued final orders disposing of the two aforesaid motions for modification, (3) denied two motions for modification that she filed in 2021, following the issuance of the final orders, and (4) denied a motion for modification that she filed in 2020, in between the issuance of the interim orders and the final orders. We dismiss, as moot, the portions of the appeal challenging the propriety of the interim orders and the denial of the defendant's motion for modification filed in 2020, and we affirm the remainder of the trial court's decisions.")

AC44752 - V. V. v. V. V. (Application for Relief from Abuse; "The defendant, V. V., appeals from the trial court's May 20, 2021 postjudgment orders, one of which was vacated by the court and one of which reflected that the defendant's counsel withdrew all of her pending motions on the record at a hearing that same day. Because the defendant was not aggrieved by either order, we dismiss the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.")
