Wright v. YoungAnnotate this Case
This appeal arose from the trial court's denial of appellant Willie Wright's motion to vacate and set aside a final order and decree of divorce dissolving his marriage to appellee Kenya Young. According to appellant, who is incarcerated and acting pro se in this appeal, he never received notice of the final divorce decree. Appellant avers he first learned of the final divorce decree on October 2, 2014, in response to a September 2014 inquiry he made to the clerk of the trial court about the status of the divorce proceedings. Upon learning of the final divorce decree, appellant filed a motion to set aside. Without making any findings as to notice, the trial court denied the motion. The Supreme Court reversed: since the record shows that appellant filed an answer to the complaint for divorce, appellant did not waive notice. The case was remanded for the trial court to make findings on record on whether appellant received notice.
