Getting divorced entails a wide range of financial considerations, including potential income tax liability. Spouses who are able to amicably resolve their divorces can often structure terms that provide tax benefits on both sides as certain arrangements have tax implications while others do not. Is child support tax deductible? What about alimony? Can your property distribution trigger income tax liability? Here is a brief overview of some of the key tax-related issues involved in getting divorced in Georgia:
In situations involving domestic violence, one of the most important legal tools available to those who have been abused is the temporary restraining order (“TRO”). These orders are what is commonly thought of as a “restraining order”. By preventing contact between the abuser and the victim, temporary restraining orders serve to break the cycle of violence and prevent harassment outside of the home.
Child support payments in Georgia play an important role in ensuring your child’s physical, emotional, and developmental needs are met. In cases where these payments are non-existent, made sporadically, or fail to account for the total amount of your child’s expenses, we can assist you in seeking an order of support through the family court.
During proceedings for a divorce in Georgia, the division of marital property is often the subject of disputes, particularly if the couple has significant assets. When these assets include a business, such as a sole proprietorship, a partnership, or a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC), property division can become even more contentious. Dividing business interests in a divorce can have a significant impact on your current and future security, making it important to understand the guidelines the court uses in handling these types of cases.
