Seek Work Orders and Imputation of Income in Sacramento Support Cases

In Sacramento child support and spousal support cases, both parents must support their children to the best of their financial abilities.  Also, each spouse owes a duty to become fully self-supporting to the best of their abilities.  When one or both spouses is being dilatory in their duties, the other spouse can ask the court to order the dilatory spouse to seek full-time work.  This means the spouse must submit a certain number of job applications per month and send copies to the requesting spouse.  Failure to do so will usually hasten the court’s decision to impute some form of wages to the dilatory spouse.

Also, the requesting spouse can ask the Sacramento support court to impute income to the underemployed or unemployed spouse.  (Imputation means to input the income into the other spouse’s part of the support calculation even if they are not actually earning that income.)  The court will usually impute at least full-time minimum wages if no progress in seeking work is made.  The Sacramento support court will usually avoid imputing more than full-time minimum wages without completion of a vocational evaluation.

If you are interested in pursuing a seek work order and requesting income imputation, please call our attorneys today.  We offer a free half hour consultation and would be happy to meet with you and discuss how we can help you in your case.
