Two Ky Supreme Court Family Law Published Opinions Rendered August 27, 2009

Mauldin v. Bearden

Questions Presented:

Child Custody and Visitation. Issues include whether Kentucky retained jurisdiction over visitation under KRS 403.824, a UCCJEA provision adopted in 2004.

 

Goldstein v. Feeley

Questions Presented: Petition for writ of mandamus and prohibition properly denied where there was an available remedy through an interlocutory appeal of an injunction via CR 65.07. Regardless of the question of in personam jurisdiction over the Executor, trial court retained subject matter jurisdiction over the marital property when one party died after the entry of the decree of marital dissolution but before resolution of the marital property issues.
