Dollard v. Dollard

Facts:

The first wife asserted that decedent, prior to his death, failed to make payments as required by a temporary support order and that the decedent’s personal estate was insufficient to pay the indebtedness. The first wife contended that the previous order requiring decedent to pay spousal and child support pendent lite remained in effect following entry of the final divorce decree, which reserved issues relating to support and retained the suit on the docket pending resolution of such issues. The trial court determined that because the first wife failed to file claims for support before the decedent’s death, there were no sums of support due by the decedent on or after the date of the divorce decree.
