Second District Discusses Post-Judgment Jurisdiction

The Second District Court ruled today in King v. King, in so doing reversing the lower tribunal’s finding that jurisdiction was lacking to enforce interest payments due under the parties’ marital settlement agreement by use of its contempt powers, and as a result denying the Former Wife’s Motion.  That Court was reversed because the Final Judgment contained a specific reservation of jurisdiction for enforcement purposes, and the Second District also pointed out that, if jurisdiction were truly lacking, denial on the merits was improper in favor of dismissal of the motion.
