12 - Tax Issues
This is a brief introduction to some aspects of federal tax law related to divorce and separation. You may want to consider this information in structuring any spousal support, child support, or property settlement as part of your mediation. Please note that the mediator cannot provide individual legal advice regarding these or any other issues. If you desire individual legal advice, they should contact the attorney or tax expert of their choice. An accountant can also be jointly retained by mediating parties to calculate the tax impacts of optional arrangements and for purposes of maximizing overall tax benefits.
