We had the FDR hearing yesterday and got a financial order approved by the judge. My ex husband agreed to pay a lump sum by the end of April. I realised that it is the end of tax year, we did not agree when they will file decree [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url]. If they file it today, but the settlement money is supposed to come in a the end of April, then that will be a new financial year and I would have to pay tax. Does anybody know if by law they are supposed to wait until the money is transferred as this was a settlement based on needs? Thank you.
