Alimony: Is Padding Expenses Justified? Or Risky?

December 28, 2018

A Court May Decline to Accept Claimed Expenses that Are Overstated and Unsupported. This is an appeal from a district court’s award of alimony in the aftermath of a contentious divorce. Wife contends that the court abused its discretion when it declined to accept her claimed expenses at face value--even when the claimed expenses by Wife had no relation to historical needs, exceeded the Husband's take-home pay, were overstated, and Wife failed to provide credible evidence regarding finances and expenses--as opposed to Husband's testimony which was credible, detailed and specific.
