Divorce Vocational Evaluation & Spousal Earning Capacity Assessment

The purpose of a Vocational Expert in divorce litigation is to determine the earning capacity of a spouse or a plan for increasing that earning capacity when alimony or child support must be calculated. If an individual has a long term, salaried job, this is a simple task, however, this rarely is the case when earning capacity is a litigated issue.
