Using vocational experts for spousal support determinations

One of the key considerations for determining spousal support is determining the earning capacity of each individual involved in the divorce. This is true of child support as well, but unlike child support, spousal support is not guaranteed. It takes the help of a skilled lawyer, and sometimes, the use of a vocational expert to determine whether spousal support should be included in a final decree for divorce.

Filing tax returns during divorce

Of the many things to consider during divorce, taxes are not typically high on the priority list, at least initially. However, divorce will have a significant impact on your filing status, especially if your divorce is still in process at the end of the tax year. Generally speaking, if you received a final decree of divorce or separate maintenance by the last day of the tax year, you can file as a "single" individual or "head of household."
