We left undisturbed the attorney's fees that the wife had already incurred and the husband had already paid.   Id. at 290–91.   However, we vacated the award of attorney's fees that the wife had incurred, but the husband had not yet paid, and remanded to the trial court to determine the reasonableness of those fees pursuant to the procedure we set out in Gosselin v. Gosselin, 136 N.H. 350, 353–54 (1992).  Id. at 291.   We further held that the Gosselin procedure would apply to any attorney's fees the wife incurred in the future.   Id. We declined to address the husband's constitutional arguments because he did not demonstrate that he had preserved them for our review.  Id.

Slip opinion modified.

DALIANIS, C.J., and CONBOY and LYNN, JJ., concurred.
