Husband Successfully Sets Aside Unlawful Default Against Him and Then Wins at Trial

Divorce lawyer Matthew Sundly represented Husband in a divorce case and successfully set aside an unfair default judgment before obtaining an order for Wife to pay Husband’s attorneys fees at trial

Case Results

Matthew J. Sundly represented Husband in a divorce case involving no children, minimal assets, but a lot of community debt. Wife had obtained a default judgment against Husband before Husband had hired Mr. Sundly and she had unlawfully assigned half of her student loan debts of over $60,000.00 to Husband in the default judgment. Our lawyers successfully motioned to set aside the default judgment Wife had obtained and then represented Husband in a divorce trial where we successfully argued Wife’s student loans were her separate debt and that her other claimed community debts were in actuality her own separate debts as well.

Our law firm successfully argued for an order for Wife to pay all of Husband’s attorneys fees associated with the divorce trial because she had no legal grounds to oppose Husband’s position at the trial.
