Managing divorce after the alimony tax rule changes

In 2019, alimony will be different for newly divorced couples in Georgia, at least when it comes to taxes. Going forward from Jan. 1, alimony payments will not be tax-deductible for the ex-spouse making payments. Also, the recipient will no longer have to list payments as taxable income. For couples not able to get their divorce in before the new rules take effect, it may still be possible to minimize financial burdens after a split.

Living conditions in Georgia can interfere with child custody

Each case is different, but when judges in the U.S. must make decisions regarding child custody and visitation disputes, they will often take into account a parent's living conditions. Children have certain essential rights, which need to be respected and attended to no matter who has custody or visitation rights.

What divorced spouses should review at the end of the year

Starting a brand new year can mean a lot for recently divorced individuals. The next 12 months could be the first full year without your spouse by their side. Some find it depressing, while others find it relieving as they enter their new phase in life. You could make resolutions to improve yourself physically or financially to start recovering from the separation, or you could go back to dating to see if your true soulmate is still out there.
