My SO's X tried to price their house based on what it would have been worth if all of the repairs and remodaling the house needed were done. He had to have 2 appraisals done and actually took pictures of all the work that was needed to prove to the judge it was only worth $75,000 as apposed to the $130,000 she was claiming it was worth. She didn't get anything out of the house. She sounded REALLY stupid on the stand saying it would be worth $130K if HE does all of the work to fix it BEFORE she would get her half.

Yup sounds like brother's X... She just can't stand that he sold the house. I think she was hoping it would tank and he would have to foreclose because he wouldn't be able to afford it. She's a hateful person.

[quote] I would have never agreed to 30% of my bonus in the first place ;) [/quote]

I hope the OP realizes this would be 30% of the bonus after applicable taxes are withheld - i.e. 30% of the NET bonus. Maybe that'll help his feelings a little bit.

Ok..so yes..I should have paid her probably when the money was given to me and yes the bonus will be prorated as I really only hit two quarters this last year. Was it a stupid agreement..yes.

I am reviewing with a lawyer today but they are going to send notice to my ex. to obtain what her sal. w bonus is. If it is more than 20% then we will go after a modification, but I will end up paying the bonus.

My question if I owe her 8K and I can only pay 2K at the time of the court date what then? Can I work out a payment plan to pay the rest off?

Well they can't force you to pay something you don't have. You will fall into arrears and you should be able to come up with a monthly payment for the bonus/arrears, until it is paid off.

You'll need her cooperation on that. I would try to work out a payment plan with her BEFORE sniffing after her new job. If she knows you are looking into her new job, she might not be as willing to work with you.

How sad that you had to get lawyers and the courts involved in this. You owed the 30%. If you couldn't pay it, try to work it out with her directly. Now you'll not only pay the 30%, but you're paying a lawyer too. Doesn't make sense.

Even if she filed contempt, SHE doesn't have say on how much he will pay if he is in arrears. The judge (or CSE if involved) will discuss and decide that.

I think a bonus is different, because he definitly *HAD* the money. He just choose not to pay her with it. He spent it on something else and doesn't have it anymore.

Hopefully the courts will work out a payment plan. It's just a shame it all had to come to this. The CO is clear. He had the money at one point. Now he has forced her to get a lawyer and utilize the courts to get money he clearly owed her this entire time. Cases like this is why our court system is so overloaded.

Jeff, have you approached her and tried to work out a payment plan with her? Seems like you are trying harder to make sure she doesn't see your W2 than you are trying to pay her.

Try to work this out between you and stop paying lawyers.

I completely agree Gal.

Waste of money to use attornies and the court for this if you don't have to.

Jeff, most likely the judge will put you on a payment plan anyway. I'd try to negotiate something with your exwife before it gets to that point.
