A Divorce Judgment Needs To Contain Specific Findings In Support Of Equitable Distribution

September 30, 2015 by  
Filed under Uncategorized



In Matteston v. Matteson, the First District Court of Appeals ruled that the Divorce Judgment before it did not contain sufficient findings to support the distribution of personal property, bank accounts, or tax refunds, and did not have attached the items that were meant to have been attached according to the Judgment to support the division of assets set forth in it.  A trial court needs to make specific findings in support of an equitable distribution award so that an appellate court can meaningfully review it.  Failure for a trial court to do so can constitute reversible error.
