Tax issues in divorce cases

Division of property in a divorce means the parties must reach agreements about dividing assets and property, and they also need to decide how to divide liabilities. At the Lawrence Law Office, we know from experience that tax issues in divorce cases are complex and an area of dispute that requires an attorney’s advice to resolve. Our Delaware OH Tax Attorney helps clients deal with touchy tax issues that surface during a divorce negotiation, litigation and when post-divorce modifications are needed.

Ohio Family Law

Our attorneys have extensive experience helping clients meet the rules of Ohio Family Law. People need help when relationships end in divorce or separation, and sometimes after the divorce is granted. Many issues confronted during a divorce relate to assets, retirement funds, transfer or sale of property, debts and liabilities. Most people think of alimony, child support and visitation as the main issues to deal with, but we know there is much more to settle during this process.

Attorneys and partners Linda J. Lawrence and Rodd S. Lawrence have helped numerous Ohio clients work through complex and emotion-laden divorce issues like visitation, child support and spousal alimony. In addition, people must decide who will pay debts and have tax responsibilities, and how to deal with new estate planning matters. Tax issues in divorce cases include more than just one-time taxation. Ongoing taxation is tied closely to spousal support, child support and the division of property as well.

Ohio taxes affect everyone, but during a divorce, the parties involved may try to swing a more favorable tax break in their own direction. Some items like support or alimony are deductible by the person making the payments. At the same time, certain items with cash value may be considered to be taxable income to the person receiving payments. Property distributions, divisions of stocks, bonds, IRAs, pensions and other investments also have tax consequences and advantages. We work diligently for tax solutions that are in our client’s best interest.
