In re Marriage of Goodman, D055950

By FindLaw Staff on January 05, 2011 | Last updated on March 21, 2019
Marital dissolution proceedings

In re Marriage of Goodman, D055950, concerned a challenge to the family court's order modifying a pendente lite child and spousal support order in favor of the wife, in marital dissolution proceedings.  In reversing, the court held that the family court exceeded its jurisdiction as the Legislature expressly intends that temporary support orders may not be modified retroactively.  Further, the prospective modification of the order was improper because there was no pending order to show cause or motion for modification as required.
