LORNA RAE KRUSE, PLAINTIFF-RESPONDENT,
JOHN J. KRUSE, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
On appeal form Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Family Part, Morris County, Docket No. FM-14-0107-96.
NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
Submitted September 25, 2007
Before Judges Skillman and Yannotti.
This is an appeal from a July 26, 2006 order of the Chancery Division, Family Part. The order provides in pertinent part that "[p]laintiff shall provide all relevant financial information necessary to calculate child support including her tax returns for 2004 & 2005 to Defendant within thirty (30) days[.]" The order further provides that defendant's motion for a modification of his child support obligation is "denied for lack of sufficient information[,]" and the order directs the "[p]arties to exchange information per prior paragraph[.]"
Thus, the July 26, 2006 order is not final because it clearly contemplates that the issue of modification of defendant's child support obligation will be decided after the required discovery is provided. Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed as interlocutory.
