Convicted felon goes 0-20 on appellate issues in divorce case

The opinion in Budnick v. Budnick might be used as a case study in all the different ways to lose on appeal - with 20 issues raised, some were rejected because no authority was cited for them in the appeals court, some were waived in the circuit court, some were never raised in the circuit court, and most of the issues decided on the merits had to do with the fellow arguing in essence that his felony convictions shouldn't be held against him in a way that would take money away from him and give it to his ex-wife and children.
