Fortwengler v. Fortwengler  

A prior appeal affirmed the 50/50 division of debt to husband’s father. Husband sought to garnish wife’s maintenance to satisfy her half of the debt. Trial court’s denial of this request and trial court’s subsequent denial of husband’s father’s motion to intervene for a judgment and payment schedule was affirmed on appeal. Proper procedure is for husband’s father to attempt to collect the debt in a separate action against wife.

C.J.M. v. Cabinet for Health and Family Services 

Termination of parental rights affirmed.
