How will the tax changes to alimony affect divorcing couples?

Just before their holiday break, Congress passed and President Trump signed the much-talked-about and highly-debated tax reform bill. Among the changes in the sweeping bill is that alimony will no longer be a factor when divorced people file their income taxes, whether they are paying it or receiving it. It will be a non-issue to the Internal Revenue Service, just like child support is.

Why choose mediation for resolving your child custody case?

Mediating child custody cases has become a popular alternative to long, drawn out courtroom battles in recent years. One of the reasons more couples have turned to mediation in cases like this is because it's been shown to be a less stressful option on the kids and parents alike.

2 times to alter a prenuptial agreement

A prenuptial agreement is a document both spouses sign stating how to divide certain assets in the event the marriage ends in divorce. Many spouses want these documents to protect their money and property, but there have been plenty of instances when a court overturned a prenup because it did not meet the court's standard of quality. 

What happens with the house when we divorce?

When a husband or wife first receive divorce papers from their spouse, one of the first things that runs though their mind is what will happen with their home. In a state like Florida, where equitable distribution is king, the judge will generally split up property in a way that he or she deems fair or equitable.

What are the benefits to mediating your prenuptial agreement?

When it comes to prenups, there's often only one party that's interested in having it drafted. In that situation, the other would be just as happy for it not to exist. It's often when couples begin negotiating a prenup that the less affluent partner's feelings get hurt. Situations like this can make for a difficult way to start the marriage off.
