Divorce Tax Planning

Tax Planning Specifically During Divorce Proceedings

One of the most valuable services a divorce attorney can provide to a client is help separating the emotional aspects of divorce from the purely financial considerations that every person must address when negotiating a divorce agreement. A final divorce decree will include provisions regarding financial matters like division of property and obligations to pay child support or alimony — and the details of these decisions can have far-reaching tax consequences.

The New Jersey Law Firm of Goldstein Law Group

At Goldstein Law Group, our attorneys have built a strong reputation as aggressive advocates who provide practical advice about the financial consequences of every piece of the divorce agreement.

We consider it a central part of our responsibilities to our clients to provide solid answers to such important financial questions as:

  • What are the tax ramifications of assets a spouse may receive via the equitable distribution process?
  • Is it better for tax planning purposes to transfer an asset from one spouse to another or to offer the asset for sale?
  • How will income tax be affected by obligations like child support and alimony?
  • Can plans be made now, during the divorce process, that will help minimize estate taxes down the road?
