The mother sought to obtain an order for $1,864 per month for child support and which would have left the father to pay roughly 71% of any additional childcare cost. In addition, the mother sought to have the father pay around $1,440 a month towards the household’s expenses, such as the marital residence’s mortgage payments.

The father countered with requesting that all of the maintenance payments be based on the couple’s income. He further argued that the mother misrepresented her salary and requested that more financial documentation be submitted. The court ruled that more evidence of the mother’s financial status needed to be reviewed based before temporary maintenance would be issued for the mother’s reasonable needs.
