In the Matter of Keli Eckroate-Breagy & Paul BreagyAnnotate this Case
Petitioner Keli Eckroate-Breagy appealed a circuit court order denying her motion to reopen the property distribution decreed in her divorce from respondent Paul Breagy. She filed the motion after the respondent received two inheritances. She also appealed the trial court’s refusal to compel answers to her discovery requests about the inheritances. The New Hampshire Supreme Court found: (1) property acquired by either party after the date that the divorce decree is issued is not marital property; and (2) in light of holding that the inheritances were not marital property, the trial court’s refusal to compel discovery regarding the inheritances was not an unsustainable exercise of discretion.
