McManis Faulkner successfully implemented the work of vocational experts and work efforts orders to show that the supported spouse was malingering and not actively seeking re-employment. Experts were used to assess the spouse’s earning capacity. The experts’ reports and testimony demonstrated specific activities the spouse should have performed to become self-supporting. The spouse’s failure to follow the Court’s orders and recommendations of the vocational experts resulted in the client paying a modest support award with termination of support in three years.
