Spring 2020 Family Law Newsletter: Should you file taxes jointly or separately during a divorce?

The recently published Spring 2020 Family Law Newsletter assesses whether income taxes should be filed jointly or separately during a divorce.

This decision depends on a number of factors, including the amount of deductions at stake, and whether divorcing spouses are able to reach an agreement on the division of tax liabilities and any refunds.  The Spring 2020 newsletter, published by partner Gary Owen Todd, also covers other important issues, including the nuances of relocating with childen following a divorce, and when it's appropriate to seek a modification of a child custody order.

Mr. Todd, a Founding Partner at the firm, is recognized locally and nationally as a preeminent family law attorney concentrating on domestic relations and probate litigation.  He has successfully negotiated, mediated and tried numerous family law issues at the trial court and appellate levels.
