Do I get a tax deduction for paying child support?

If you and your spouse in Pennsylvania are considering a divorce or maybe are already in the midst of your divorce negotiations, you will no doubt have many questions about how the ultimate settlement will affect you financially. In addition to living on a lower income and maybe having to move, you will want to understand the potential tax implications of some of the decisions that may be part of your final agreement.

Pennsylvania divorces to see big changes

The holiday season is often a time when couples in Pennsylvania experiencing marital challenges work extra hard to hold their families together. Some people use this season to correct their paths and try to save their marriages altogether. Other people may agree that they will get divorced but choose to hold off initiating that process until the holidays are over. This year, however, may be very different as couples might have an unusual incentive to complete their divorces before the New Year is ushered in.

Managing child custody exchanges

You may view your divorce as the end of your association with your ex-spouse, yet in reality, they may continue to remain a major part of your life (especially if you have children together). That can be particularly problematic, however, if there is a history of domestic violence between you. Concerns over the fear of continuing abuse are often echoed by those who come to see us here at Palange, Endres & Marks, P.C. While you can try to limit your contact with your abusive ex-spouse, fulfilling a child custody obligation might put you in situations where you are forced to again deal with them face-to-face. 

Figuring out your financials after divorce

Going through a divorce is difficult, but many people do not realize that life after divorce can be tough too. This is a new chapter in your life with many adjustments and changes to think about. Dealing with and figuring out your financials can be especially hard to handle.

How is a parenting plan used by the court?

When you get divorced, the court in Pennsylvania has you develop a parenting plan, which outlines your visitation and custody agreement with your ex-spouse. This plan can be very helpful to everyone to ensure there are no misunderstandings or issues when it comes to your children. The court uses it to ensure that the situation is in the best interests of your children.

Facing the difficult realities of divorce

Pennsylvanian couples who are getting a divorce will have their expectation of how it will go, and then they will be faced with the reality of the situation. That isn't to say there won't be overlap between the two, but there are certainly going to be cases in which something occurs that wasn't anticipated.
