Aghast is on a distinguished road

So she makes 55k working 10-12hrs per week. That's great!

What does she do with the other 28 hours per week the average person spends working? It doesn't seem like she is earning to her potential. Shouldn't she find another part time job and make more money?

Even working 28 hrs per week at minimum wage, to add up to the normal 40 hrs the majority work, would add about $16,000 to her yearly income. Could she not have more income imputed on her? It seems to me she is underemployed at 12 hrs per week.

This is just an opinion. I have no experience with imputing income, though I should soon.

Imputing wage seems to be easier to be done on men in court (certainly when I review CanLii cases)
What does she do with her off time? Good question. She certainly creates a lot of lengthy emails to me discussing my shortcomings, my faults, where I have let my children down, where I have not supported her, where any court action I may try to undertake will only result in tension and stress on the children.
Yet - she does not try to provide emails or solutions to our issues that could preclude us from court. But then that would be seen as trying to move on.
Again - why would she offer to change anything that would result in less money for her and less time with the children for her?

Imputing income is not an easy feat in many circumstances. You have to show a historical pattern of earning more income in the past (corroborated). You have to also show that the individual possesses the experience and qualifications to earn a specific range of money in the location that they now reside in. You have to steer away from any speculative information and deal with the here and now facts.
