Ostler Smith and Temporary Support
Asked Dec 29, 2011, 06:46 PM
I will try to make this simple. Filed for Divorce in February 2008 wife moved out 11/18/08 I received 2 bonuses that year 1 in July and 1 in November I believe the week before she left. My case has dragged out for a long time. Anyway, I do not believe any marital standard of living was established with my bonus payments. I do realize that in smith ostler the bonus payments would be subject to child support. I am trying argue the position that no spousal support should be paid on my bonus income since no marital standard of living was established then nor going forward since then. Can someome point me too a case of similar nature. I am still on temporary support. One thing I began the job Feb 11th of that year and it was the only job I had that paid a bonus.
