Complex Financial Litigation in Divorce Cases
Divorce can be financially devastating to the parties. Early structuring of a settlement in a manner to preserve your hard-earned assets which may lost because of a divorce is imperative. As a client, you have certain rights to an equitable division of property. Our goal as experienced counsel is to determine which assets the parties have (often they are hidden) and to obtain a fair and reasonable settlement, taking into account the needs of our client and what effect that a resolution of the divorce will have on the parties’ assets.
Our office has worked with highly experienced forensic experts, for many years, to assist us in the valuation of the assets held by the parties and in locating assets which may be hidden by one spouse from the other.
Special Alert Re Tax Considerations In Divorce Cases Relating To The New Tax Act
Currently spousal support (alimony) is tax deductible in most instances to the party paying it and not taxable to the party receiving it. Recently, under the new tax act, the law changes with regard to the deductibility of spousal support or alimony in divorces completed after 2018. This will be an important consideration in determining whether one should file for divorce or whether to complete said divorce in 2018.
