Case About Evidence to Prove That Husband's Expenditure's Were Reasonable

In In re Marriage of Hahin, 266 Ill. App. 3d 168, 171, 205 Ill. Dec. 788, 644 N.E.2d 4 (1994), the Court noted that neither party had accused the other of dissipation, the husband had been required to obtain the separate residence when he took a job in Springfield, Illinois, the wife had agreed that she and the children would remain in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, when the husband took the job in Springfield, and there was no clear evidence that the husband had spent more than reasonable sums on his Springfield residence. Hahin, 266 Ill. App. 3d at 171. In addition, the record was not clear concerning when the breakdown of the marriage had occurred. Hahin, 266 Ill. App. 3d at 171. In reversing, the Court noted that the husband was never given the opportunity to present "clear and specific" evidence that his expenditures were reasonable. Hahin, 266 Ill. App. 3d at 171.
