What is intentional underemployment?
Bob has a child with Mary. Bob makes $10,00,000 a year as a professional baseball player. Mary takes Bob to court for child support. Bob is in his baseball prime and could still play if he wanted. But Bob decides to retire from baseball and take up a job as a Tik Tok dancer that pays $10,000 a year.
Bob believes that Texas child support calculations are based on income. Bob is mad about having to pay child support and wants to reduce the amount he pays to Mary. Bob thinks he would pay much less in child support on $10,000 a year vs $10,000,000.
