Tanzman v. Meurer - A trial court that predicates a financial support order on a party's earning capacity must ascertain the particular dollar amount of the party's earning capacity.

Powell-Ferri v. Ferri - Based on Massachusetts law, it was proper for trustees to transfer funds from one trust that let the party husband withdraw principal to a second trust from which he could not withdraw principal. The automatic orders did not require the husband to sue his family member trustees for return of the assets.

Dowd v. Dowd - Although the husband was aware of his alimony obligations under the separation agreement, he failed to comply based on a creative but meritless interpretation of the agreement. An award of counsel fees and interest was proper.
