Maiden Name in Dissolution and Court’s authority on Judgment

Maiden Name in Dissolution and Court’s authority on Judgment

By , Nov 13 in Law with 0 comments

Rules provide that an authorized after-trial motion extends circuit court’s authority for 90 days but no more. Court entered a ruling on the 91st day. ¬†At the end of the ninetieth day, the circuit court’s authority expires.

The Circuit Court was in error by denying the request for Wife’s maiden name to be restored. Court of Appeals corrects error under authority to render judgment that circuit court should have rendered, thus her maiden name was restored.
