If you can show that your spouse purposely failed to disclose income, you may be entitled to a credit for some or all of the temporary maintenance you’ve been paying in your divorce.
Most likely this will be applied in the final settlement rather than in a cash payment, but relieving yourself of some of the burden during the divorce, and ending it with a more favorable settlement, can easily save you thousands of dollars.
Sometimes these are accidental, but quite often, there is an effort by one spouse to hide earnings or assets so that the other will be forced to pay more.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we protect our clients from unfair maintenance payments based on your spouse’s failure to disclose income.
