IRAs grow in importance in property division

As the tax laws change regarding alimony for divorces concluded in 2019 or later, many people are looking toward individual retirement accounts as a way to create fair settlements that preserve tax benefits for both parties. When the shifting of the tax burden for alimony goes into practice, the current environment that encourages generous support payments through a valuable tax deduction will change considerably. However, both parties will still be looking for a solution that provides a measure of tax protection for the paying former spouse while providing needed funds to the recipient.

Keeping the home after a divorce becomes more expensive in 2019

For many California couples, considering getting a divorce may be a major step towards the realization that their marriage is about to end. While former couples should never rush to divorce unless there is violence or abuse in the marriage, waiting to get a divorce finalized in 2019 versus 2018 could have an impact on the former couple's finances, especially if one person wants to keep the family home.
