Bennett v. Bennett

Florida District Court of Appeal
655 So. 2d 109 (1995)

Facts

Ronald Greg Bennett (plaintiff) and Kathryn Bennett (defendant) filed for divorce. The Bennetts agreed to all matters of the divorce except for who would retain custody of their dog, Roddy. After a hearing, the trial court awarded Ronald custody of Roddy. The trial court awarded Kathryn visitation rights and entered a judgment allowing Kathryn to have Roddy every other weekend and every other Christmas. Ronald filed for a relief from the judgment and a motion for a rehearing on the ground that Roddy was his premarital asset. In response, Kathryn filed a motion for contempt because of Ronald’s refusal to comply with the judgment. Additionally, Kathryn requested a change to the visitation schedule because of Ronald’s failure to comply. A second hearing was held to consider the motions. The trial court denied Ronald’s motions and granted Kathryn’s motion to change the visitation schedule. The trial court entered a judgment allowing Kathryn to have custody of Roddy every other month. Ronald appealed.
