From time to time, I blog about Child Support because of the close association it has with parenting mediation.
In a recent Child Support case, a father “failed to provide full and frank disclosure as to his income, property, and financial resources” and the judge made her own findings as to his income. The father appealed the decision. The mother sought to recover the costs of that appeal (because she was forced to defend). The father lost the appeal and then incurred the mother’s costs as well as his own.
It is important to make full and frank disclosure of income, property, and financial resources for the purposes of Child Support because, if your evidence is not “full and frank”, you might get a decision you’re not happy with.
