Professionals Versed in Issues Related to Divorce

Marital and non-marital property can be difficult to segregate when considering a proper division of assets in the dissolution of marriage. There are strict IRS rules governing alimony and child support guidelines vary by state. Tax implications of all these can be lasting and irreversible if not dealt with proactively and properly in divorce settlement agreements.

Financial Security at the Height of Divorce Disputes

Financial consultants can aid in a plan for financial security. This may mean permanent, periodic alimony payments, a one-time lump sum payment or some combination of both. However, it could also mean selling off assets or planning for a future stream of income from employment or income-producing assets. It is essential to engage the financial consultant for a review of the final settlement agreement to discern whether the language is consistent with long term objectives.
