IRA distributions is income for child support purposes

In re Marriage of Eberhardt, No. 1-07-0135 & 1-07-2142, Cons. (December 12, 2008) 6th div. (Cahill) Affirmed in part, reversed in part, remanded.
Trial court correctly concluded that there is no bar to treating distributions from IRA accounts, distributed to husband as property in dissolution of marriage proceeding, as income for purposes of child support; and trial court did not abuse its discretion when it denied father's petition to modify his child support obligation. Further, trial court did not err when it denied husband's claim that personal funds held in bank accounts garnished by former wife are exempt. However, trial court erred when it awarded former wife's petition for attorney's fees without affording former husband evidentiary hearing which he requested.
