  • Alimony payments are about to undergo a radical change from a taxation perspective as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). Currently, alimony payments to an ex-spouse can be written off come tax season. However, these deductions will soon become a thing of the past. The new tax reform law goes into effect on January 1. Divorces finalized before the end of 2018 are not affected by this modification. For divorces finalized in the new year, one major change is that alimony payments will no longer be deductible.   READ MORE, Act Now - Tax Deductible Alimony Expires Soon
  • Whether you are thinking about getting a divorce or already deep in the process, health insurance may not be on the forefront of your mind. While this may seem like a minor detail in the face of child custody or property division concerns, losing your existing health insurance coverage can create several financial problems in the years following a divorce. In light of recent news of potential health care policy changes, your attorney should ensure that you and your children remain covered post-divorce regardless of any future change in the law or administration. READ MORE, What Women Risk Losing After Divorce
  • The end of August brings something every parent looks forward to and every kid dreads: back-to-school. For parents this means new clothes, shoes, supplies, maybe a backpack or lunch box. If your child is involved in any sports or other extracurricular activities that start up in the fall, you can also count on fees, uniforms, equipment, travel, and other expenses to support those activities outside of the classroom. READ MORE, Back to School: Splitting the Cost
