Carole E. Damron Shortt v. Frederick Cecil Damron

Case Number:
Case Date:
Case Issue:

Petitioner initially filed a Motion to Vacate an Order dated August 3, 1987, which included a provision requiring petitioner to support the children for "post high school education". The Family Court found that although the Motion to Vacate was granted by virtue of the statute, because the provision for higher education was incorporated in a Separation Agreement, it "survives as an independent contractual obligation." The Circuit Court later affirmed the Family Law Court's decision.
