Family Law Tax Strategy
Separated spouses and divorcing parents need an effective family law tax strategy to achieve the best results for themselves and their families. Tax-related issues lurk in the dark corners of family law litigation and settlements, often emerging in subtle and unexpected ways. Disastrous results may occur when tax traps are overlooked in cases involving alimony, child support and tax credits, marital property transfers, income tax deductions, and retirement distributions. Spouses and parents who make the right tax decisions in their divorce and support proceedings always come out ahead.
Frumkes & Vertz on Divorce Taxation shines a beacon on family law tax strategy. A leading litigation strategist, Pennsylvania family lawyer Brian C. Vertz has updated and expanded the life’s work of the late Melvyn B. Frumkes. This must-have book is updated annually with the latest tax law developments. Mr. Vertz deploys his family law tax strategy in his divorce practice, representing clients in Western Pennsylvania.
Avoiding tax traps in family law settlements
A favorable settlement can be ruined if tax consequences are not thoughtfully planned. An effective family law tax strategy requires a working knowledge of the issues that arise most frequently in prenuptial agreements, divorce settlements, child support negotiations, and marital property agreements. Frumkes & Vertz on Divorce Taxation contains practical tips and legal analysis, providing a blueprint for the negotiating table. Each chapter is updated annually, covering topics ranging from child tax credits to business valuation to foreign assets. The blog, Family Law Tax Alerts, delivers the latest tax cases and fresh legal analysis throughout the year.
Reducing the tax bite in divorce litigation
Don’t let unforeseen tax consequences undermine your success in a marital property lawsuit or child support proceeding. Many lawyers and even judges who preside over equitable distribution and community property cases may not be fully aware of the tax ramifications of property transfers, alimony, and retirement accounts. Critical tax issues may be overlooked or misunderstood without the proper guidance and legal authority. Frumkes & Vertz on Divorce Taxation can assist the bench to reach the right decisions about alimony deductions, children’s dependency exemptions, and qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs).
