About the Program

Child and spousal support are cornerstones of most family law files. Where the payor spouse hides, underreports, or manipulates information related to income, a court may impute income. Whether you are acting for the payor or the recipient of support payments, understanding the benefits, roadblocks, and costs challenges of imputing income is critical. This new, 90 minute webinar provides an easy way for legal practitioners to stay up to date on this important topic. Experienced family law lawyer and Chartered Business Valuator Stacie Glazman and seasoned accountant Sharon Griffin will address key resources and evidence needed to properly calculate imputed income, and offer insight on when to move forward with convincing a judge to impute income, and how to contest claims of imputed income. Among other things, you’ll learn:

  • What earning patterns and history can be used to support imputing income
  • How to identify red flags of undeclared income in tax returns and financial statements
  • Key documentation needed for income analysis
  • How to analyze evidence of lifestyle to support an imputation of income

To impute income or not? That is the question. Join us to take a closer look at when and how to pursue imputation of income in family law cases.
