Value of Homemaker Services

Bonnie Brown, a Louisville attorney, AAML fellow and KCFN member, sent this article from the May 3, 2006  Boston Globe quantifying the value of homemaker services. While divorce does not directly provide a vehicle for compensating such services, we remind each other from time to time of a case where she made this argument as part of a spousal support claim. She was delighted to see the article putting a dollar number on the value,and I’m glad to pass it on.
