Jack v. Jack

Facts:

The parties’ first marriage terminated in divorce after about nine years in Fairfax. The parties remarried each other months later and remained married for about 11years. At the time of the first divorce the husband’s pension was of little value and was not subject to equitable distribution. The wife argued that dividing the marriage into two segments created enormous inequities. The court held that the wife’s position was inconsistent with the law. Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.3 stated that property earned or acquired during the marriage was subject to equitable distribution. The court held that “marriage” was a singular term that revered only to the present marriage between the parties. No authority suggested that the term could be expanded to mean two or more marriages between the same couple or to suggest that two marriages between the same parties be incorporated or merged for equitable distribution purposes into one. The court noted that equitable distribution was typically a one-time award of property acquired during the marriage and for equitable distribution purposes the first divorce was not rendered void when the parties remarried each other.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Custody and support are ongoing matters following a separation or divorce that are, by necessity, made moot by a subsequent remarriage of the parties. Equitable distribution, however, is typically a one-time award of property acquired during the marriage made upon the dissolution of that marriage. Such an award is a vested right of the recipient and, thus, not rendered moot or voidable by a subsequent marriage between the parties. Therefore, for equitable distribution purposes, a first divorce is not rendered void when the same parties remarry each other; nor does the marital estate at the time of the second divorce encompass assets acquired during the prior marriage.
