If you suspect your spouse is not reporting all the money that’s coming in and you want more support based on what you think the real numbers are, you must prove it. You can testify as to what your spouse told you about income or have other people testify about your spouse’s income. Another way of proving that income is being underreported is to prove that your marital lifestyle cost a certain amount and that was fully paid for with your spouse’s earnings during the marriage, thus leading to the conclusion that your spouse makes enough to support that lifestyle.
