Whenever parties finalize a divorce, there may still be cause for ex-spouses to meet in court again. The recent case of an ex-wife and her Major League baseball team franchise owner ex-husband highlights how seeking a divorce settlement modification or nullification can land former couples back in court. Any Connecticut couples in the midst of divorce may want to follow the case to see if the modified settlement that is being sought is awarded years after the original settlement.
During many divorce proceedings in Connecticut, the process of property division takes center stage. For a lot of couples, issues concerning how to handle the family home become paramount. While some couples will agree to sell the house and split the proceeds as a part of their divorce agreement, this option is not so simple in a real estate market that has yet to recover from the recent crash.
