Illinois Appellate Court
Civil Court
Citation
Case Number: 
2013 IL App (4th) 120355
Decision Date: 
May 6, 2013
District: 
4th Dist.
Division/County: 
Coles Co.
Justice: 
HOLDER WHITE
Holding: 
Appeal dismissed.
Trial court's order finding that wife was entitled to maintenance, but reserving issue of maintenance for future determination and not setting an amount of maintenance to be paid, is not a final order for purposes of appeal. Court reserved maintenance to be review in six months, along with status of husband's employment and financial circumstances. Thus, appellate court lacks jurisdiction to consider merits of husband's appeal of court's allocation of 55% of total marital estate to wife, and finding that husband dissipated $14,000 in marital assets.(STEIGMANN and POPE, concurring.)
