Bajestani v. Bajestani (Tennessee 2017)

A parent, with a college degree and other qualifications, is considered voluntarily unemployed if the parent is not actively seeking work and income can be imputed to calculate the child support obligation. The mother in this case had a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering and spoke three languages, and the court found she was not diligently seeking a position. It was also appropriate to deny her credit for work-related day care expenses when she was not actually working.
