A recent court ruling outside the state of Alabama denied a man's request to lower his child support obligation, as well as mandated that he pay his former wife's attorney fees. According to reports, it is not the first time the defendant has requested that the court modify child support in his case. He has set forth an appeal in the recent court decisions.
Alabama readers may be aware of the divorce proceedings involving David Dunkel, the CEO of Kforce. After the divorce judgment was entered in another state, Dunkel's former wife filed a contempt of court motion against him, alleging that he intentionally defied court orders relating to the case. Reportedly, the issue involves a court-mandated transfer of stock holdings concerning Kforce, a company with an estimated worth of $1.2 billion. The transfers would make her one of the top shareholders in the company, though both parties have apparently raised issues in the aftermath of the divorce rulings that will be addressed in an upcoming hearing.
