Southeast Attorneys Experienced in Recognizing Tax Issues

If taxes are not considered as part of your overall divorce settlement, you may find that the value of your marital estate is diminished significantly after the divorce. Our lawyers are committed to helping you develop a divorce settlement that ensures your long-term financial health.

Though property and asset transfers during divorce are not considered taxable events, there can be tax implications after the divorce. When structuring your divorce settlement, we can assist you in taking into account the value of your assets after taxes.

Alimony is another important consideration, as it has tax implications for both parties. Alimony payments are tax deductible for the payer and will be taxed as income for the receiving spouse. We can help you determine whether a settlement that includes alimony payments would be beneficial to both parties.
