Kaplan further argued in his filing that a onetime payment of $50,000—for Spears, anyway—would amount to nothing more than pocket change, stating that her average monthly income is a whopping $737,868.
While Kaplan opted not to divulge his own client's monthly salary, he did claim that Federline, after shelling out for various unspecified expenses, has "no net income" whatsoever. Adding insult to financial injury, his monthly spousal-support payments of $20,000 from Spears will end their run in November.
Spears first filed for divorce from Federline in November 2006, two years and one month after tying the knot. The divorce was finalized in July, and the couple is now ramping up their legal battle on the custody front, fighting for guardianship of kids Sean Preston and Jayden James.
