When A Complex Divorce Intersects With Business
If you own a business or professional practice, your divorce has even higher stakes. The valuation and division of your business assets in a manner that maximizes your finances is crucial.
We have helped business owners and shareholders in a variety of industries uphold the long-term well-being of their companies, even when faced with a contentious asset division battle. In situations where a divorce and the division of your business may cause a ripple effect on other areas of your life, a property division lawyer at Gormley Law Offices, PLC, can help you anticipate these issues and address them proactively.
Comprehensive Spousal Support Representation
Spousal support, better known as alimony, is often a factor in high asset divorces. Given the income and net worth of high asset couples, support awards have the potential to be substantial. Having an alimony attorney on your side is vital, whether you are making or receiving spousal support payments.
In Michigan, spousal support is rarely permanent unless the recipient is nearing retirement, has minimal work experience or lacks the ability to maintain their marital lifestyle on their own. Permanent support may end, though, when shared retirement benefits come into play.
No matter how long spousal support last, you should prepare for its tax consequences. Since January 1, 2019, the tax burden for spousal support falls on the payor. Recipients do not need to pay taxes on any spousal support payments they receive.
The duration and tax implications of spousal support can cause anxiety for high net worth individuals. While no one should be burdened by their spousal support payments, no one should be denied the support they deserve, either. Consulting with an alimony lawyer at Gormley Law Offices, PLC, can help you ensure that any support payments resulting from your divorce are fair for both you and your ex-spouse.
