Family Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC43249 - Overley v. Overley ("The defendant, Mark S. Overley, appeals from the judgment of the trial court dissolving his marriage to the plaintiff, Monica R. Overley. He claims that the court improperly (1) failed to award him a separate property credit for his contribution to the purchase of the marital home prior to distributing that property as a marital asset, (2) contravened the parties' prenuptial agreement governing the tax treatment of alimony payments he was ordered to pay the plaintiff, and (3) denied his request for a continuance to obtain new counsel. We disagree with the defendant's first and third claims but agree, in part, with his second claim. We therefore reverse in part and affirm in part the judgment of the trial court.")
