Daniel Jaffe revealed his advice on new trends impacting marriage dissolution in an article published on April 21, 2016 in The Hollywood Reporter.
Jaffe told THR: “[Under the child support guidelines mandate,] you put in your client’s income information — call it $5 million a year — the spouse’s income, which is zero, and custodial time, and then you hit a button. In Marc Anthony’s divorce from the mother of his kids, they wanted $125,000 a month. The burden shifts to the high-income earner to prove that $125,000 a month is not in the best interest of the kids [even if it is exorbitant]. That is very difficult to do.”
The article was included in the publications’ Power Lawyers 2016 issue.
