Legal And Financial Guidance In Divorce From A Knowledgeable Tax Lawyer

While divorce clearly has financial implications, there is more to consider than the amount of child and spousal support at stake, or who is keeping the marital home. A divorce settlement can affect everything from a military pension to student loan eligibility for minor children.

Understanding the full ramifications of a divorce settlement is difficult. At Newbry Law Office, in Port Orchard, we can walk you through the various financial options available to you and how these decisions will impact your tax situation.

In all circumstances, we will look to minimize your tax obligations, help you avoid costly mistakes and ensure you have a clear understanding of your financial situation after the divorce is through.

Straightforward And Practical Advice On Financial Matters In Divorce

With a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in taxation, attorney Laura Baier can help you anticipate otherwise unexpected costs associated with divorce. For example, a prospective college student may be more likely to qualify for financial aid eligibility if he or she resides for the majority of the year with the lesser-earning parent.

We can also help you with matters such as:

  • Your filing status, including claiming dependents on your individual or Head of Household return
  • Dividing your pension, 401(k) or other retirement account in divorce through a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO)
  • Understanding income and deductions relating to spousal support
