My Husband threatens to quit his job if I divorce him. Will he get away with not paying support?
No. Your attorney would argue that your husband is voluntarily underemployed and therefore should be viewed as making the same income. There are some legitimate reasons people change careers. Quitting to avoid alimony or child support is not one of them. For example, if a spouse earning $50,000.00 per year quits his job and now earns $25,000.00 per year, an experienced divorce attorney will argue that the spouse should be viewed as earning $50,000.00 for support purposes.
