Understanding the alimony tax changes that took effect this year

Most of the changes brought about by the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) took effect in Tax Year 2018. One of the most reported-on changes, however, doesn't impact taxpayers until they file their 2019 taxes. That's the removal of the tax implications of alimony payments.

Do custody plans allow children to leave the state?

Parents who are planning to divorce or recently divorced are probably in the process of figuring out how they can best accommodate their children's needs. Child custody planning can get especially tricky for people who travel a lot for work. Most parents decide to plan a custody schedule that aligns with their schedules.

Some benefits of a mediated divorce you may not have considered

Texas law requires that divorcing couples at least attempt mediation. However, many couples choose to continue the mediation process through to the end to divide their assets and debts and determine custody and support issues. If you and your spouse can work together to settle these matters, mediation is less expensive and time-consuming than a litigated divorce. There are other -- possibly even more important -- benefits. Let's look at a few of them.

How to minimize holiday stress with a blended family

If you're a divorced parent, it's likely that eventually you'll become part of a blended family. Your new spouse may have children. Your co-parent may have a new spouse and stepchildren. There could be a host of grandparents, aunts and uncles and other relatives in your children's lives.

What should you do if your kids don't like your new partner?

You've been divorced for a while. You've met someone you've come to really care about, and you introduce them to your children. You start slowly with short outings or a pizza-and-movie night at home. However, it soon becomes clear that your kids don't like your new partner. Maybe your daughter ignores them, and your son is openly hostile.

Catch your breath before rushing to date after divorce

Going through a divorce can make you feel like you just went a few rounds with Mike Tyson. It can knock the stuffing out of even emotionally hardy individuals. If the divorce was initiated by your ex and unwanted by you, the grief you feel is very much like what you'd feel if a loved one had died.

Things you definitely shouldn't do if you're in a custody battle

If you're in a custody battle with your ex or soon-to-be-ex, the stress and anger you feel may cause you to behave in ways that will only harm your case. If you believe that your co-parent and possibly the judge and others who have a say in the outcome are being unfair, you might feel like giving up. You may not worry about how your actions will impact your case.
