Do I have to pay taxes on alimony?

When it comes to divorce, there are all sorts of issues that could arise, such as the custody of children and child support. However, spousal support can be especially challenging for certain people, whether someone is worried about being able to maintain their standard of living after divorce or unsure if they will be able to afford the alimony payments they are obligated to make. In Naples, and in all other Florida communities, there are additional matters that people dealing with spousal support should be aware of, such as how it could affect their taxes.

Domestic violence and family law

While divorce and other family law issues such as child support can be very difficult, these matters can be even tougher for those who are also going through challenges due to domestic violence occurrences or allegations. At the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, we are aware of the different problems that families in Florida may encounter because of family violence. Moreover, we know that each situation is unique.

Is your name still on the title of your family home?

Letting go of the family home in Naples when you divorce may have been an emotional decision, but keeping it often creates financial struggles for the one who stays once he or she goes from two incomes to one. However, choosing to be the one who moves out does not guarantee that you are free and clear. The Washington Post notes that as long as your name is on the deed, you are still the co-owner of the property. This has the potential to lead to serious issues for you.

The perks of being a father: Bonding with your baby

As a father who has never been married to your child’s mother, you may not get the opportunities you need to bond with your baby during early developmental stages if you do not establish paternity in Florida. By taking this crucial step, you are clearing the way to form a healthy attachment with your infant that can make a difference for both of you from now on. At the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, P.A., the team has often provided assistance to fathers who want to be involved in their children’s lives.

Grief: The emotional component of the divorce process

A Florida divorce is literally the dissolution of a marriage contract, and typically represents a major life change for both spouses—one that often triggers a number of difficult and unpleasant feelings. Unlike the legal aspect, the emotional challenges cannot necessarily be put on paper and dealt with logically. However, MentalHelp.net explains that there are methods for coping that can lessen the effects and help a person move on more quickly.
