Crater v. Oliver

Cite

185 A.3d 719 (US DC Ct. App., 2018)

Summary

Trial court acted within its discretion in including former husband’s gains from exercise of stock options as part of his gross income for purposes of calculating alimony payments, though former husband asserted that stock options were not regular source of income and that brokerage account had been assigned to him under terms of divorce decree. There was evidence indicating that former husband’s gains from exercise of stock options were a regular source of income, including that he regularly received stock options over the years as part of his compensation and had exercised those options, and there was no indication whether options at issue were awarded to him at time of divorce or in later years.
