Burggraaf v. Burggraaf, 2019 UT App 195 (Nov. 29, 2019)

Nov 29, 2019

In this appeal from a divorce decree, the court of appeals held that the district court did not abuse its discretion when imputing income based on a high earnings for several months, declining to use self-employment income as a measure for imputing income, awarding unpaid child support, determining that the majority of student loan debt was husband’s separate obligation, and dividing property.  The modest alimony award was vacated, however, because the district court did not consider the husband’s obligation to service student loan debt when assessing ability to pay.
