I cannot find any case law that specifically talks about relocation costs in terms of child support. I'm sure this has occurred before, but I just don't see a reported case.
Again, because this money is earmarked as relocation fees, I don't think a court will include it as income.
Again, thanks. Last question before I pay for your services. The relocation "allowances" were circa $225k (pre-tax) paid out over a 3 year period and noted as relo allowance on my W2's for costs of living increases. Although there may not be any case law on this issue, have you heard of anyone within your peer group that may have come across this situation?
I believe my ex and her attorney will make the case to secure a portion of the funds although 2/3 of the allowance was issued post date of seperation.
Appreciate your feedback.
