Divorce attorneys can be faced with significant challenges in evaluating spousal income if one party is voluntarily unemployed, underemployed, has been out of the workplace for a significant period of time, or if there is a child with a disability and uncertain work potential.
These issues can be further compounded if one party cannot work due to a medically proven disability, incarceration, or institutionalization.
A determination of potential income must be made by evaluating employment potential and probable earnings level based on the obligor’s education, work history, occupational qualifications, prevailing job opportunities, ownership of a substantial non-income-producing asset, and earnings level in the community.
