cashcow4ex is on a distinguished road


I am in the exact same boat. My ex runs a home daycare and during mediation she was claiming after all her deductions a salary of about $6000 which meant full spousal support...bla, bla, bla.

During mediation, I had several of her supposed deductions thrown back into her salary such as Vehicle expenses such as gas, insurance, and interest on the car loan as it was a 4 seater car and she had 5 kids plus herself. How is she suppose to use the vehilce for 2 outings a week?

The only costs I agreed to were the direct costs from the daycare. Such as the cost to advertise for spaces, the food (only food used for daycare), the business insurance (unlicenced daycare) and a set amount for toys/books.

I reminded her that I was not going to accept the horse shit deductions she submitted to CRA ($9400 for food, $4300 for toys/books, $2700 for outings, all vehicle expenss and more) and that if she insisted on keeping those deductions that I would have an independant audit done and that I too would get to remove those same bogus amounts from my year end salary.

So once it was all said and done, her salary went from $6000.00 to the proper $20k something which changed the SS calcultor amounts to a more reasonable amount.

Good luck.

FightingForFamily will become famous soon enough

It's arguable that she may be entitled to non-compensatory support until the youngest enters full time school at age 6. So, for two years she can stay at home and the child wouldn't be in daycare.

Anything more than this is pushing it.
