McHugh v. McHugh
In McHugh v. McHugh, 27 Conn. App. 724, 609 A.2d 250 (1992), the Court interpreted 46b-215b (a) to require a trial court to make a "specific finding on the record that the application of the guidelines would be inequitable or inappropriate when the amount awarded deviates from the amount resulting from the application of the guidelines, as determined by the application of the deviation criteria established in the guidelines . . . ." Id., 728.
The McHugh court remanded the case to the trial court for a specific finding as to why the guidelines should be ignored as inequitable or inappropriate. Id., 729.
