Sample of Successes and Cases Involving Post-Judgment Matters
Sometimes the parties do not have litigation issues until after their Judgment of Dissolution is filed. In a case where the parties had a Stipulated Marital Settlement Agreement ordering his client to pay $4,200 per month in child support, Mr. Mullen was successful in convincing the Court to reduce the child support order to zero. The Court was receptive to Mr. Mullen’s argument that the Court should impute income to the other party based on a job she left a year prior to the court hearing. Additionally, the Court found that the other party was receiving recurring gifts from her church to support herself. Under the 2009 Alter case, the Court has discretion to consider recurring gifts as income available for child support.
