When I look at the federal stuff it looks to me like it should be included in income calculations. March 4, 2019 at 12:38 pm #4131 LexKeymaster There are different ways to look at this. Was lost income part of the settlement? That can always be included. What income could reasonably be expected from $3 million if invested? That is another way to include it. Any court would expect assets to be productive of income and will often just attribute a reasonable amount whether invested or not. March 6, 2019 at 1:47 pm #4132 3kidsmomParticipant Thank you!

In any event, if he did, then he did. I would think the burden would be on him to show that he did not receive any personal benefit from the $3 million -that it was spent or owed in medical bills.
