This week's Case Law Update
Distribution DecreasedMarital property may include property titled in one spouse’s name, and increase in property value if financing paid for with marital income. Court of Appeals adjusts values of property and amounts distributed to Wife. Respondent may raise error as to Circuit Court rulings without a cross-appeal if it helps maintain a judgment favorable to her. Pre-nuptial agreement was erroneously entered into evidence because it was relevant to an affirmative defense, not plead.
