of plaintiff's assets. The judgment
attached $ 60,000 of funds the plaintiff
is currently holding in a bank account.
General Laws c. 208, [***16] § 36,
provides that, "when alimony
or support is adjudged for the spouse
or children, the Court may require
sufficient security for its payment
according to the judgment" (emphasis
added). The plaintiff argues that
the primary purpose of the attachment
was to secure the college
expenses of his son n10 and that,
because these expenses are a future
contingency, they have not yet been
subject to a judgment, as required
by G. L. c. 208, § 36. The plaintiff
concludes [*190] that the judge correspondingly
exceeded his authority under G. L.
c. 208, § 36. We disagree. PHILIP
