A former New York City police officer was held responsible for paying the even though he had taken a major cut to his salary, according to the June 11, 2012 edition of the New York Law Journal. Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Sunshine wrote that they would not let the husband â€œcontrol the litigation or attempt to financially restrainâ€ his former wife because he says he is unable to pay the amount previously agreed upon.
The respondent had previously agreed to a pendente lite stipulation, to pay his wife over $1,600 bi-weekly. However he voluntarily took a salary cut, just a few weeks later, when he resigned from his job and became an entry-level police officer near Atlanta.
The court held that the respondent was obliged to pay his ex-wife, as he was aware of the stipulation when he made his decision to leave New York.
