Court’s Evaluation of Finances

What does the court value the salary of a homemaker? For example if I make $100K a year what do they value her salary at for the distribution? Is it like if they value it at $40K (just for example) then 4/14 (40K/140K combined) is what her portion would be of any equity, etc.? Thanx!

The court does not place a dollar value on a homemaker’s salary. I’m not sure what you are asking but if you are inquiring about a property division, the court takes into consideration several factors such as length of the marriage, ability to support oneself once the marriage is dissolved, contribution to the assets by both spouses, etc.
