N.C. Appeals Court: You ain't getting golf and gas money

Chris Hood quoted in North Carolina Lawyers Weekly North Carolina Lawyers Weekly 2/3/2016

Litigation associate Chris Hood was quoted in the North Carolina Lawyers Weekly article, "NC Appeals Court: you ain't getting golf and gas money," by Jeff Jeffrey.

The article reviews the unanimous decision by the N.C. Court of Appeals to uphold the trial court’s denial of plaintiff-husband’s claim for postseparation support on the basis that husband was not a dependent spouse.

Chris said, "It's much rarer for postseparation support to be denied, so there is far less case law on when losing out on that support amounts to the denial of a substantial right."
