  • Mr. Bagby recently gave a presentation in Beverly Hills to family law attorneys and judicial officers titiled "Fiduciary Duties: Rights and Duties of Spouses and Registered Domestic Partners. Click Here for more information.

  • In July 2009, after making unsuccessful efforts to persuade a former husband to make child support payments to his client for years which included years when the four children were residing with the former husband, Mr. Bagby filed a formal motion to have the court determine the amount of child support due and owing to his client. The former husband was represented by multiple prominent attorneys, including several partners with a prominent family law firm. After obtaining information regarding the income of the former husband during the relevant years, in December 2009, before the parties had incurred substantial litigation fees, Mr. Bagby suggested to the former husband's attorneys that the former husband could settle the claims for  somewhere in the range of $2.5 million. Husband claimed that he did not owe more than approximately $1 million in back child support because all four minor children moved to his home over the years in question, Mr. Bagby's client had also signed an Acknowledgment of Satisfaction of Judgment in which she acknowledged that she had been paid in full prior to 2002, and he should not be required to pay child support based upon capital gain income.  After a trial, the court concluded that the Acknowledgment of Satisfaction of Judgment was not enforceable, and that the former husband was required to pay child support based upon his capital gains income.  In November 2011, Mr. Bagby was successful in recovering $3.6 million in back child support in addition to substantial attorneys fees, accounting fees, and costs previously awarded.

  • Mr. Bagby obtained an order in October 2011 for a former husband to pay his client $3.5 million for his failure to comply with the provisions of the Judgment entered in 2004
