McAdam v. McAdam

Wife and Husband were divorced by stipulated decree. In post-divorce contempt proceedings, each party claimed the other party was in contempt. The district court (1) concluded that both parties were in contempt for failing to list to martial residence for sale as required by the decree and ordered the home listed by a specified date; and (2) concluded Husband was not in contempt for failing to transfer half of his investment accounts and stock options to Wife but ordered Husband to transfer an investment account and three stock options to Wife. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court (1) properly modified the stipulated decree when it ordered Wife to share any loss on the home if it sold, or, if it did not sell, to pay one-half of the mortgage payment; and (2) did not err in not ordering Husband to pay Wife’s fees and costs.
