It is my understanding that his attorney can use your income earning “potential” opposed to your actual income since you willfully left your job. I’m not 100% on this but I’m pretty sure it’s legal. My ex’s attorney convinced a judge that 4 months after my divorce I purposely lost a job i loved to get more money in child support from my ex. I brought documented proof that i lost my job when my child took ill and I was not granted the leave i needed because I didnt have the personal leave available… and my motion to modify child support was still denied… I’d tell you from experience bring EVERYTHING you have to court with you… Put ALL your important documents in a file folder and just bring the whole thing. You never know what could save your butt… Any incriminating emails all of it… My ex’s attorney brought an email I wrote my ex into court, naturally he only brought in a portion of the email and nothing of my ex’s email that I was replying too… In my email i had called my ex a dead beat and said I was going to be sure that I was granted back pay on the child support he hadnt paid me yet… His attorney said it was a harassing email and that it was merely a judge of my character… Mind you this man whom I was once married too hadnt paid child support in several months despite a court order AND hadnt seen his daughter in over a year despite living 30 mins away from us… SO… All I can do is wish you luck and tell you bring EVERYTHING!
Good Luck… I’ll be using my income tax return to hire an attorney and hopefully take my ex back to court next year…
