First Paragraph:

This is an appeal from the final divorce decree of Rathnasabapathy
Mohan ("the Husband") and Mathivathani Mohan ("the Wife") which was
entered by the lower court in December of 1996.  The contested divorce
action initiated by the Wife involved issues of custody, visitation,
child support, alimony, classification and division of marital
property, and apportionment of marital debt.  This appeal by the
Husband emanates from the fact the Husband was not present when the
final hearing took place.
