Common Tax Issues Involved in Divorce

Don’t Overlook the Tax Issues Created By Your Divorce

Tax consequences follow many of the decisions made during a divorce, settlement agreement, or marital dispute resolution – often for many years to come. Whether you are involved in a divorce, separate maintenance agreement or annulment, it is important to consider taxes and the implications they may carry. Having knowledge of the tax issues created by your divorce is essential. This is why you should have an experienced divorce lawyer by your side.

Although your marriage may be coming to an end, the old saying about death and taxes still rings true. While the institution of marriage has often drawn comparisons to an economic partnership between two people, the truth is that both spouses need to be aware of their responsibilities for any and all tax liabilities incurred. Overlooking the tax consequences stemming from your divorce would be a mistake, which is why we encourage you to speak with the team at Lois M. Brenner, Esq. today.

Some of the most commonly overlooked tax implications include:

  • Tax implications of spousal support
  • Tax implications of child support
  • Tax exemption for dependent children
  • Deductibility of mortgage interest
  • Tax implications of pensions and 401(K) plans

    “I would strongly recommend her as a divorce /representative attorney.”
    I utilized Lois's services for divorce. She was most helpful in all aspects. First, she explored reconciliation, which was the right thing to do. Absence of that, her suggestion of what to negotiate for, how to do it without unnecessary anger & hostility to the ex & how to expedite the process was invaluable. Timewise she was excellent & sympathetic to what I was going through. She was always available & her fees were very reasonable. I would strongly recommend her as a divorce /representative attorney.
    “Best Mediator Ever :)”
    We were looking for a mediator to help us with visitation issues we were having due to the pandemic. With all the problems we were having getting the kids back and forth, and arguing about taking trains and buses during visitations, we called Lois Brenner to help us make some decisions. She really set us straight. She spent a lot of time with us so we could get a parenting agreement together to set some rules we could both agree to. I feel a lot better now. Thank you Ms. Brenner.

    “"High Net Worth Professionals"”
    I am a highly successful money manager and before meeting Lois Brenner, hiring a divorce attorney was a disaster. Two previous divorce attorneys really wasted my funds, and had no savvy when it came to asset and property distribution. Lois Brenner finally fixed the mess I was in. She and her team of financial experts, including attorney Matthew Ehrlich were able to prepare an asset and property distribution that was realistic, keeping in mind tax ramifications, and important distributions and allocations. They negotiated a thorough and financially sound divorce settlement. If you have a lot of assets, just any divorce attorney won’t do. You really need someone with a lot of knowledge. Lois Brenner and Matthew Ehrlich were really impressive. Thanks!!

    “Lois is a "Rock Star"”
    Lois is a “Rock Star” I was very worried about my daughter who was in a really bad marriage. I started researching divorce attorneys and found Lois Brenner. I called her, discussed my daughter’s horrible marriage and she agreed to meet with us. Since my daughter’s husband wanted out of the marriage too (he was cheating), Lois suggested she help them dissolve their marriage in mediation. To my surprise it worked out. Lois was able to keep my daughter and husband from fighting during their sessions, and she helped them resolve all their financial issues. Since I was paying the fees to help my daughter, not having to go to court saved us a great deal of money. As a father, I am truly grateful for everything Lois did. Her talks with me in the beginning of the process, to calm me down, really helped. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of divorce.

    “Lois is the absolute best”
    Finding my way to Lois was the best thing that could have happened during my very contentious divorce. Lois took on my case with a level of care that has been above and beyond. She has been an incredible advocate for me, both legally, guiding me through this difficult process with knowledge and wisdom, and also personally, helping give me strength and support to stand up to my very aggressive ex husband. Lois is a gift, and I am so grateful to her and for the future she is helping to make possible to myself and for my son.

    “Lois Brenner is a Warrior for men”
    When I first decided to hire a divorce attorney, I thought a male attorney would be best. Lois Brenner really surprised me. Although she has written a divorce book on women’s rights, she is totally an advocate for men as well. She really understood how much I loved my kids, and listened and understood all the horrible things my wife was doing to destroy their relationship with me. She didn’t miss a beat and really went to bat for me. She reached out to my wife’s attorney every time my wife made any attempt to disrupt my visiting our kids and always demanded the best results. She made herself available, even when she was on vacation! Lois has been there every step of the way in these difficult circumstances. I highly recommend her.
