Otto Miller III


This paper discusses whether or not a divorce court, by granting a continuing order for support and/or alimony, thereby retains such jurisdiction over the person that it need only give notice by mail or publication before reducing an arrearage to a lump sum judgment which, under "due process" is entitled to full faith and credit in the courts of sister States. It is assumed that the court had jurisdiction over the person of the defendant at the time the order for support and/or alimony was originally granted.
