The appellant in this case was also the former wife of the defendant. The appellant has filed for a motion to order the court to review the family support case. The former husband, also known as the former husband, has filed a motion to terminate his financial support to the former wife and reduce his payments for child support.
A New York Custody Lawyer said that the family court was tasked to review the case and determine whether the rulings should stand. In order to begin reviewing the matter, the divorce settlement of the former spouses should also be submitted for review. According to the findings of the family court, the trial court’s rulings on the marital agreement were unclear or can be interpreted in many ways. The appellate court has determined that a reversal of proceedings should be in order to determine the correctness of the trial court decisions.
The former husband and the former wife have 2 children below the age of majority. The court has finalized the divorce settlement and ordered the former husband to pay support to his former wife. He was also ordered to provide financial support for the two children. According to the family law, the former wife was entitled spousal support. The amount of support will be deducted from the former husband’s income. The spousal support was to be paid to the former wife every year. The marital agreement contains the terms of payment for spousal support. The former husband must comply with this rule by family court.
In the marital agreement, an income cap was agreed. The former wife will not be entitled to spousal support if the income of the husband was to exceed a certain amount. A Nassau County Family Lawyer said that it was ordered by the court, the former husband was obliged to pay support for his children until such time that they reach 18 years old or until his death. The family financial support will terminate when these conditions are met. According to family law, the support payments cannot be modified or changed into another time or amount based on the time spent by their children in their respective custody.
According to the marital agreement, both the former wife and the former husband had agreed to the condition that amount of support will not be changed based on the income of the former wife. The former wife and the former husband can seek the modification of the support terms when there are changes in their standard costs of living, exchange rate, inflation and when one of the parties is suffering from a serious medical condition.
The marital agreement also contains the expiration or termination date of support. The date of termination shall not be subject to changes under any conditions. No party can request for additional support when the termination date has lapsed. The court will also have no authority to order support after the expiry date of the marital agreement. A Queens Family Lawyer said that after the date of termination has passed, the former husband will no longer be obliged to pay support for his former wife and children.
The former husband had filed for a modification of child support. According to his motion, the former wife has remarried. The former husband feels that since the former wife has a new husband who will also support her, the former husband is no longer obliged to pay support to her.
The former husband has acknowledged his support for his own children, a reduced amount should be established under the jurisdiction of the court in which they all now reside.
It has been determined by this court that the motion of the former husband is reversed. The appeal of the former wife to stop the temporary relief is granted. The court has found that new child support guidelines should be set by the new state of residence.
