plus the increase in value of the pension due to post-separation
service ($253,000). The husband’s counsel requested that this
sum of $469,500 be added to the husband’s income, spread over
five years, for a total of $93,900 per year.
 However, the husband’s counsel also submitted that this
was an appropriate case for lump sum support. Using the
$93,900 figure, he submitted a Guidelines calculation based on
a “with child support formula”, which produced a lump sum
support range of $116, 711 to $173,805, subject to a credit for
$25,000, paid in advance, after tax.
( ii) Submissions on the February 13, 2015 hearing
 During the February 13, 2015 hearing, the motion judge
reiterated that he was not yet persuaded that he should
apply the Guidelines to determine support and requested
submissions “with respect to spousal support without reference
to the Guidelines”.
 The wife claimed monthly expenses of approximately
$88,000. Having regard to those expenses, her counsel advanced
what he termed “three scenarios”. The first two scenarios
addressed support for 2013 to 2017, and characterized the
husband’s pension income differently in each. The first two scenarios also addressed two different splits of the parties’ net disposable incomes (“NDI”). Both of these scenarios were premised
on the wife having an annual income of $6,770. The third scenario addressed child and spousal support for 2012.
 The first scenario was premised on the husband’s total
taxable income for 2013 ($329,480), which excluded amounts
transferred to the LIRA. Based on a 50/50 NDI split, the first
scenario yielded Guidelines monthly support of $13,862; based
on a 52/4814 NDI split, the first scenario yielded Guidelines
monthly support of $13,141.
 In her second scenario, the wife relied on Mr. Norton’s
alternate characterization of the unequalized portion of the
pension, under which he imputed $49,866 into the husband’s
income until 2024 and $43,220.33 from 2025 onwards on
account of the unequalized portion of the pension. Adding the
$49,866 unequalized portion of the pension to the husband’s
other income sources of $194,548 resulted in a total 2014
income of $244,414. Based on a 50/50 NDI split, the second
scenario yielded Guidelines monthly support of $10,284; based

a 52/48 NDI split.
