– from Arthur R. in Vernon, WI
My wife and I filed for a divorce eight years ago. The judge initially gave a property settlement to her in the sum of $5,000. However it was never finalized as we decided to try and make our marriage work again. This past year, we filed for divorce one more time. My wife spent the sum from the initial property settlement. The court again ordered me to pay my wife a property settlement and this time for $7,000. I want to appeal this because no reason was given as to why another settlement was needed and why it was higher than the last time. Do I have a potential case?
