Post Divorce – High Net Worth – Denial Of Request For Additional Support
After our client, who was the less monied spouse, was divorced they obtained different employment where they were earning a much higher income than what they were making at the time of divorce. Our client’s former spouse was the residential custodial parent. When our client’s former spouse learned of our client’s increase in income, the former spouse requested that our client pay increased support. We successfully opposed the request made by our client’s former spouse by pointing out to the court that the needs of the children had not changed and were more than adequately being met. The court agreed with our argument and issued a decision awarding our client’s spouse a small percentage of the amount requested in their papers for increased support.
