My ex was laid off from her job as a CPA in April. She is taking the kids to Europe this month for vacation and spending about $12,000. She did not try to get another job before her vacation. She has not been actively looking for full-time work.
She is remarrying a fairly wealthy guy. They are moving in together. She has told the kids she is now planning on working only part-time. Knowing her, she will not get a job for months, if at all, because she will give herself time to move. When she gets a job, it will likely not pay well, because she does not like stressful jobs.
I am paying her child support based upon her earning $50K.
If she files a motion for increase in child support because of her income decreasing, how hard is it to get a judge in Orange County to impute income to her? A. She is not pursuing paid work, B. She has enough money for expensive European vacations, C. She refuses to find a well-paying job in her chosen field. I live in Orange County.
It of course galls me that she chooses not to work while I have always worked full-time, she is remarrying a guy she will use financially like she used me, I will continue to have to pay her child support to subsidize her indolent lifestyle, and she just gets away with it. I see nothing I can do besides just get over it. Is there anything I can do?
