Alimony Changes in 2018

The newly-enacted Tax Cut and Jobs Act ("TCJA") made changes to the tax treatment of alimony that will take effect for divorces and legal separations after January 1, 2018. Alimony-payer deductions and payee's income inclusion for post-2018 divorces and separations will end.

Understanding property division during a divorce

Divorces can be messy, high-conflict processes, especially if your marriage has gone on long enough to include kids and a fair amount of shared property and assets. That's why it is important to understand how the property division process works in a divorce. When you understand that process, it is easier to focus on strategies that will help you achieve your goals, and it is also easier to weigh the advice you receive from your attorney and other sources.
