Divorce proceedings can be expedited once each party’s short- and long-term employability and earning potential are researched and evaluated carefully.
In cases of divorce in which a spouse has been out of the workplace for a number of years, we analyze education and prior work history along with the local labor market. This helps determine whether there is need for further education and training to help position the individual as a marketable candidate in a competitive work environment. If all prior work history lies within a profession or industry for which there is little opportunity, our evaluation will determine employability through the use of a labor market survey. From that evaluation, we also will set forth a reasonable expectation of earnings.
For cases in which an historically high-earning spouse enters into a divorce and then claims to be unable to earn at that same level, our evaluation will objectively support or dispute such claims. Such an evaluation is particularly valuable in determining equitable child support and alimony.
