What is the test for determining income for a separated parent in the context of a separation application?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Janzen v. Janzen, 2014 BCSC 1374 (CanLII):

In so doing, a court should determine what the party is earning from each source of income at the time of the application, using the most current information available. The court may then use the information to predict what the parent will earn for the year from each source of income. The income from each source is then adjusted to determine what income is actually available: Murphy v. Murphy, 2000 BCSC 974.
