in 2000. Father was required to pay “all reasonable college costs” for minor child. In 2008, Mother filed a petition to hold Father in contempt for failing to pay expenses associated with child’s acceptance to Troy University. Father filed answer and counterclaim to have post-minority college obligation modified due to lost job and drastic reduction in income. In 2009, Court entered order requiring father to pay $650 per month toward college expenses pending trial. In 2011, the Trial Court entered a judgment stating the parties consented to a judgment against the father for $74,821.74. Father filed post-judgment motion in which he claims that the parties had been unable to come to any agreement. Father also claimed that amount listed by Mother was exorbitant and not supported by evidence. The Court denied relief. The Father appealed.
The Appeals Court stated that it has “required retroactive application of postminority-education-support
orders since Bayliss v. Bayliss, 575 So.2d 1117 (Ala. Civ.App. 1990) , was decided.” It could not remand the case for Rule 54(b) certification.
