    I understand that in family law the Asset Pool to be divided is based on the value at property settlement, rather than at time of separation. But what about income earned after separation? If this is also included in the Asset Pool to be divided there is a great incentive for the lower earning party to delay settlement for as long as possible whilst their former partner's income builds up. Or is all income (not related to joint assets) earned after separation excluded from the Asset Pool to be divided?

    Thanks
