How to Collect From Stock Options
Stock options count as income toward child support! Find out how to collect even if he’s trying to hide it.
Income that can be collected for child support isn’t limited to just paychecks. It can come from unemployment, interest through savings accounts, prize money, capital gains, stock options, etc. In the Ohio Court case of Murray v. Murray, they found that stock options should be considered in the child support obligor’s gross income.
If he gets income from any of these sources, he should have 1099 tax forms filed to show this income. However, some obligors may attempt to hide this income to hide it from the IRS or you.
If your ex has kept his stocks hidden or has recently purchased stocks, you can subpoena his portfolio to make sure it's counted toward his income.
