Certain questions become very common in the practice of divorce and parenting. Particularly with the commonality of changing jobs more often than in the past and second marriages and/or new relationships post-divorce, issues rise that may not have been an issue many years ago. This week I am writing about two of those issues that are now common and rise often.
First I will discuss Attribution of Income. This is when a party experiences a decrease in income and now seeks a reduction in support. The Court, in some circumstances, may determine support using the former, or another, income (called the “imputed income”) rather than using the true current income.
Second, I will discuss how income of a new spouse/significant other figures into my new boyfriend/fiancé/husband’s child support.
Check back and stay tuned for more information as the week moves on!
