A court can order a parent to pay child support pursuant to an immediate wage execution. The parties married in 2006 and have two minor children. It was the wife’s second marriage. The plaintiff wife testified that the husband requested an annulment soon after the marriage. In January 2013, the husband vacated the marital residence. The court found that both parties contributed to the breakdown of the marital relationship. The plaintiff wife, 44, works part time as a patient care assistant. The defendant husband, 44, works for a construction company. The court awarded joint custody of the minor children, with primary residence with the wife and visitation with the husband. The court ordered the wife to complete the parent education program and the husband to pay child support of $166 per week until the oldest child graduates from high school, and then to pay child support of $110 per week, via immediate wage execution. The court ordered the parties to obtain medical insurance for the minor children, provided it is available at reasonable cost. The court ordered each party to pay 50 percent of unreimbursed medical expenses. The court ordered each party to maintain life insurance in the amount of $30,000 for the benefit of the minor children. The court kept jurisdiction for the purposes of future education support, pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes §46b-56c. The court did not award alimony. The court awarded the wife the marital residence, and ordered the wife to pay the husband $40,000 when the wife refinances or on Oct. 15, 2014, whichever takes place first. The court awarded the wife the G37 Infinity and the 2003 Toyota and 100 percent of any proceeds from the wife’s 2012 personal-injury action. The court awarded the husband his interest in property in East Hartford, the 2008 Hyundai Sonata, the 2002 Toyota and a Zodiac boat. The court awarded each party accounts and investments. The court ordered the parties to hold each other harmless from debt.
