Kaiser v. Kaiser (North Carolina 2018)

Findings must support a court’s determination of an asset as income for child support purposes. The mother and the father were divorced, and the trial court set child support. Mother appealed the child support order, arguing that the court incorrectly included capital gains, dividends, and payments from her boyfriend for rent as income. She also argued the court incorrectly calculated the husband’s business income and excluded payments from his parents from his income. The appellate court addressed each source of income individually. The court remanded for further findings with respect to the capital gains, dividends, and payments from the boyfriend. The court upheld the decision excluding loans the husband received from his parents from his income and as to the determination of the business income.
