My Spouse Doesn’t Report A Lot Of Their Income. Can I Still Get Alimony In Brooklyn?

Yes, those who frequently work for cash or tips often earn far more than they report for tax purposes, which can make it difficult for a spouse to get a fair spousal maintenance (previously known as “alimony”) award in a divorce.

It is possible to argue for the higher income you know your spouse is bringing in, and have the court impute a more fair number to your spouse’s earnings.

If you believe your spouse has underreported their real earnings on their financial disclosures, you should make your attorney aware of the discrepancy.

They can argue for a more appropriate recording of your spouse’s income, which can make a big difference in the ultimate settlement of the divorce, as well as the calculation for spousal maintenance, child support, and more.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you come through your divorce in the best financial shape possible.
