NEW COURT DECISION: IF A HUSBAND OR WIFE IS NOT WORKING TO CAPACITY, HE OR SHE WILL BE ATTRIBUTED INCOME.

 

The Appeals Court this week affirmed that: if the person   receiving support or the person paying support is not reasonably employed, the divorce court judge may attribute income to that person.

 

Reasonably employed means employment obtained through reasonable diligence and, if necessary, additional training.

 

So, for example and paraphrasing the language of the Decision, if a wife could earn $32,000.00 a year as a bookkeeper, the income from her part time work, doing something else, would be ignored and she would have $32,000.00 attributed to her as income for the purpose of calculating what support the husband would pay.

The Holidays are Over and We Need to Get This Divorce Behind Us

By Anthony C. Adamopoulos, Certified Divorce Mediator and Certified Collaborative Divorce Attorney

Listen folks, the holidays are over and the two of you are still facing the divorce problem.

It is time and it is best, for the two of you and your kids to get this divorce thing behind you.

It is hard to imagine it now, but things will get brighter for each of you when the divorce is behind you.

There are only two real ways to go, Mediation or Collaborative Divorce. Don’t spend big money or expend energy and tears going the old divorce route with lawyers that are not certified to travel the smart, less expensive roads to divorce resolution.

Where there are children under 23, there are three major issues in all divorces– taking care of the children, taking care of support and dividing the property.

Mediation is the way to go if your combined income is around $100,000.00 or less and there is no real disagreement over the children, support and property.

Collaborative Divorce is the sensible route where combined income is over $100,000.00 and there are real issues such as disputes over where the kids will live or how much self-employment income there is?

Call today for a consultation with an experienced and certified divorce resolver.

Anthony is available to discuss and explain Collaborative Divorce & Divorce Mediation to private and public groups. Call for more information.
