Trugman Law Group

If the ex-partner (spousal partner) has a maintenance claim ( severance payment ) because the ex-partner earns a considerably higher income, this claim is added to the income. This also applies in the event that maintenance could be demanded from the ex-partner, but this will be omitted. Of course, something else applies if the maintenance claim was made, but the ex-partner refuses to pay. Trugman Law Group near Newport Beach is a family law firm.

For the income are not to be considered from the outset earmarked services (eg care allowance).

Step 2: Deduction of current expenses (costs)
Of the income are the monthly current expenses, ie costs incurred deduct. Deductible are about:

• Rent and additional costs
• Costs for the trip to work (income-related expenses)
• ordinary insurance (eg life insurance, household contents and liability).

Non-deductible are regular costs for so-called luxury goods (eg entertainment of a yacht).

Step 3: Crediting of allowances
In addition to the deduction of current costs, allowances can also be claimed. These allowances should ensure that not all income has to be spent on a divorce process. Currently (according to the legal aid notification 2015), the following allowances can be claimed, and can therefore additionally be deducted from the income.
