Warning: Ambiguous support provisions can prolong divorce cases
Abstract: Ideally, a separation agreement brings divorce litigation to a definitive resolution. But poorly drafted agreements can lead to multiple rounds of litigation. This article summarizes a recent Connecticut divorce case in which conflicting definitions of “pretax income from employment” in a couple’s settlement agreement led to 13 years of court battles. Marshall v. Marshall, No. 41216 (Conn. App., Oct. 6, 2020).
