Spousal maintenance in New York is a complicated topic, and we at the law office of Roger G. Smith know that it may cause you a great deal of confusion. It is difficult to understand under the best circumstances, and further complicating matters, the terms and rules keep changing.
Going through a divorce in New York is hard enough but becomes especially complicated when you have young children involved. Child custody issues are an essential part of a divorce agreement between you and your divorcing spouse. Sometimes, there are certain circumstances that warrant court-mandated supervised visitation for a parent.
As one of many married people across New York who believes divorce is in your near future, you may be trying to get your affairs in order so that you can navigate the separation and make the split as seamless as possible. While divorcing your spouse alters many aspects of your life, recent tax changes have also impacted how divorced parties file taxes, and the more you understand about these changes, the less likely you will be to get an unpleasant surprise when you file. Attorney Robert G. Smith, PLLC, recognizes that those who divorce in 2019 or later will face numerous tax implications, and he has helped many people navigate this and other issues relating to divorce.
