My wife and I are separated and looking to go through an amicable divorce. Over recent years she has reduced her working hours although in order to agree on a suitable spousal allowance I would expect her to aim to increase her working hours a certain amount. Assuming we can agree on a target income for her how should this be recorded in the future income section of the D81. Can a target income be recorded here that she is not currently earning? If not I am unsure how information regarding earnings capacity would be recorded.

Hi Mark, the D81 form provides information about each spouse's financial situation. In the future income section, you should provide information about any expected changes to your income or your partner/ex-partner’s income. This could include an anticipated increase in their working hours and resulting income.
