In re Marriage of Lyustiger, No. C057861

By FindLaw Staff on September 30, 2009 12:36 PM

In divorce proceedings, trial court's grant of wife's motion to enforce two orders of a British domestic relations court requiring the husband to pay a total of 50,000 pounds for wife's attorney fees based on the Uniform Foreign Money-Judgments Recognition Act (Act), is reversed as the Act specifically excludes from its scope the enforcement of support in matrimonial or family matters, and the award of attorney's fees was in the nature of support.
