U.S. Supreme Court

Esenwein v. Commonwealth, 325 U.S. 279 (1945)

Esenwein v. Commonwealth

No. 20

Argued October 12, 13, 1944

Decided May 21, 1945

325 U.S. 279


1. Relying upon a Nevada divorce decree, petitioner applied to Pennsylvania court for revocation of an order for the support of his wife. The application was denied.

Held: that, upon the record, the Pennsylvania court was warranted in finding that petitioner did not have a bona fide domicil in Nevada when he obtained his decree of divorce, and the Nevada divorce decree therefore was not denied the full faith and credit required by the Constitution. Williams v. North Carolina, ante p. 226. P. 325 U. S. 280.

2. The claim that the Pennsylvania courts did not afford the petitioner an opportunity to be heard on the question of domicil is without support in the record. P. 325 U. S. 281.

348 Pa. 455, 35 A.2d 335, affirmed.

Certiorari, 322 U.S. 725, to review a judgment which sustained the denial of petitioner's application for revocation of an order for the support of his wife.
