Oral Argument of Interest
Today at 10:30 A.M. CST, the Mississippi Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments in Collins v. Collins. This could potentially have a big impact on irreconcilable differences divorce in Mississippi. The issue in the case is that the parties did a waiver of the financial disclosures and the only one party was represented at the time of the divorce. The husband actually filled out a financial declaration but the wife never looked at it to notice his $420,000.00 retirement account. The issue presented is whether the waiver is sufficient under these circumstances. The wife is currently on public assistance from my understanding. The argument can be viewed on the Mississippi Supreme Court website. This is a case to watch for when an opinion comes out.
