For example, if the divorce decree says one spouse will pay the other 50% of the value of an apartment building, and will then own the whole apartment building, and that gets appealed, do the two spouses continue to each own 50% of the apartment building during the appeal, and the money not be paid yet?
Or if the decree says one spouse will pay the other $100,000 of a disputed bank account, which one spouse claimed was non-marital, and the other marital, does the $100,000 remain in the bank account during the appeal?
And what about attorney fees for the appeal? Is it likely that one spouse might be ordered to pay the other's attorney fees for the appeal? Even if not for the original divorce case? If so, when would that payment be due?
