Greetings. Yes, I would argue (if I were your husband’s attorney) that the subsidy amount reduce the child support amount. Now, if you both agree that it not be counted, then it may not be. I would wait for him to raise the issue.
A twenty year marriage usually comes with at least the following: real estate, children, retirement accounts, and spousal support needs. Do you have any of these? If you do, you NEED the assistance of an attorney so that you protect your interests. I truly believe that you can pay an attorney now to safeguard your needs or you can pay later by not having them safeguarded. As always, the decision is yours … and I do understand that cost is a large factor for almost every client.
Were you not able to find a referral to Carteret on our referral page? Please let me know…thanks
