Imputing Income in Divorce

Generally there are two sides when addressing alimony issues in Divorce. The non-paying spouse may argue that the paying spouse has deliberately hidden or suppressed income. The paying party may argue that the parent who was unemployed due to acting as the homemaker should use their abilities and engage in a high paying job. This brings the question concerning what is in the best interest of the children.

When a spouses income ability is in dispute, we may recommend a Vocational Evaluation. This will provide a thorough overview of the ex-spouses skills including: education, talents, interests, health, and abilities. It can also show what training or additional schooling may be needed to get the receiving spouse to become self supporting - which is when income can become imputed.

The vocational evaluator is often used in trial issues as a witness, and thereover he should be able to testify on employment opportunites as well.
