A large bonus probably won’t affect your spousal maintenance payments, but it may affect your child support payments.
The court expects you to report all income and financial resources as part of its calculation of your payment, and a bonus that significantly changes your income will play a role in how much you are expected to pay.
Many industries today pay a relatively modest salary and workers count on a large end-of-year bonus to provide a big chunk of their earnings.
If you omit the bonus from your filings, the court will not be happy when it finds out.
Protect yourself from higher than necessary child support payments, while meeting the terms of your support obligation.
