– from Ryan S. in Delafield, WI
My wife and I filed for a divorce. Two weeks later, I was hit by a UPS truck. The divorce judgment did not have any details of my injury or of the personal-injury action I filed against UPS. UPS offered me a large settlement. After I received the settlement, my ex-wife moved for a large child support my son. The trial court modified the support payments based off the settlement. Is this allowed? I thought once the trial court made a decision on support it cannot be modified based on any future earnings after the divorce began?
