It had nothing to do with luck. She put a lot of hard work and sacrifice into supporting her ex through his years of medical schooling. The natural expectation was that there would be a return on that investment when he began practicing because the marriage was supposed to last.

If you don't mean anything by something, you should choose your tone more carefully. You have a habit around here of snarking at people sometimes.

I'm sure we'd all love extra income without having had to do any work for it. She DID do a lot of work though, so to say it's luck like a lottery win makes it sound undeserved.

Back on topic, money/greed is just one of those things that scales up. The more you have, the more you want to keep it. And the more you have, the more money you can spend on lawyers to keep it. A judge has probably seen this many times before., and charm cannot counteract financial facts. Stick to your guns to get him to honour your agreement, without concealing income. You've bent enough, it's time to snap back to vertical.

He is arguing about an expense that is less than 1% of his income, while it's 10% of hers. And this is for something their child seems to be extremely talented at and could potentially develop into a career.

Sheesh .. sensitive much? Nobody tried to shake anything up. Relax. But maybe now I'll mention that I bet he Could have become a Dr. without S&Ts help. There are student loans, etc. I doubt she supported him the entire time and that's the reason he's a Dr. Just my 2 cents. As Beach mentioned .. damn that's a lot of support.

Total speculation. Again.
Medical school is a grueling process. You're rarely home. You have to jump at every opportunity to participate in medical treatment/surgeries when you can. You have laboratory work and hours and upon hours of study while you are not being another specialist's slave.

Who looks after the children while you are away working/studying?
Who looks after the home while you are at work/school?
Who pays your ongoing student loans, rent, utilities, food etc. while you are at school or interning?

Her ex isn't merely a GP (general practitioner).

Anyone who goes through 12 years school will tell you it sure is nice to finish without maximum debt load.

My boss (medical specialist) has always said that if he and his wife were ever to divorce she would get everything and she deserves it. It's almost non-contest in court.

S&T decided to opt for short/small compensation - entirely her decision. However, she wouldn't be the first person to change her mind, and be successful 10 years from now should she come to her senses and reopen SS entitlement.

I remember S & T and I actually did an income analysis for her on his corporation and his income. I gave her all the information she needed and I'm sure she made the best decision for her.

Whatever agreement they came to, he should abide by it.
