Warner v. Warner

Facts:

Plaintiff wife filed a petition for a divorce from defendant husband. A hearing was held on the issues of grounds of divorce, custody, visitation, child support, a reservation of spousal support, equitable distribution, and attorney fees. The wife opposed joint custody, ostensibly because of the husband’s use of pornography. The court noted that she had been willing to agree to joint custody until the husband indicated he could not continue to pay $ 1,500 in child support. The children spent a considerable amount of time with the husband, and the parties had the ability to communicate with each other. The court therefore awarded joint custody, finding this to be in the children’s best interest.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • A party contending that income should be imputed for purposes of establishing child support is required to produce evidence that is sufficient to enable the trial judge reasonably to project what amount could be anticipated had the other party procured employment.
  • Expenditures for living expenses during the divorce do not constitute waste (a dissipation of marital funds). Payment on marital debts and court-ordered support where the payment provides a benefit to the other spouse should not be considered as dissipation. Expenditures of marital funds for attorney fees in the divorce do not constitute waste.
