Steiner v. Steiner

The New Jersey Appellate Division heard a husband’s appeal after the trial court bifurcated a divorce, conducted a bench trial on the grounds for the divorce, and found in favor of the wife. The Appellate Division largely affirmed the trial court’s order. The Court found that the trial court properly bifurcated the issues of the grounds for divorce from the financial issues that followed; that the judgment was not against the weight of the evidence; and that the lower court properly excluded evidence about the involvement of the parties’ eldest daughter in the wife’s decision to file for a divorce. But the Appellate Division reversed the trial court’s order, which awarded attorney’s fees to the wife.
