From someone who had difficulty directly posting to the forum:
The spousal support order calls for a fixed monthly amount ($500) + 39% of any monthly earnings over $15,000. I retired Dec 31 2019 and was paid a bonus based on 2019 performance in March 2020. Because I had no other income in March 2020 I calculated the support for the month as follows:
(Bonus amount - 15,000)*39% + $500 fixed monthly support
My ex claim I should not subtract the 15,000 from the bonus claiming it was earned in 2019. She thinks the calculation should be:
(Bonus amount * 39%) + $500 fixed monthly support
Based on the information provided which calculation should be applied?
