AGUIRRE v. SABBETH (Appellate Division, 2nd Dep’t)

In contrast to Badwal v. Badwal, here, the Court affirmed a wife’s entitlement to 30% of the plaintiff-husband’s enhanced earnings capacity.  The wife demonstrated that she provided “substantial contributions” to husband’s attainment of his license by working full time while her husband was in school, contributing her earnings to pay household expenses, and assuming primary responsibility for the household duties.
