Alimony and tax deduction

For Nevada couples who get a divorce, alimony may be one of the many issues they have to address during the process.

Trying to make ends meet after a divorce can be challenging for Nevada residents. By being proactive, however, it's easier to live on a single income or account for potential child or spousal support costs.

This could be beneficial even for those who may not need an legal counsel to craft a divorce settlement.

How to value a business for divorce purposes

Nevada residents who work with their spouses may face unique challenges in the event of a divorce. For some, the business represents their largest and most valuable asset.

Situations in which divorce may be the right choice

Some Nevada couples who are considering divorce might feel as though it means they have failed. However, in some cases, divorce is the best choice for two people who have irreconcilable differences.

Divorce may be necessary when relationships turn toxic

Nevada couples sometimes stay together even though their marriages may seem beyond repair to their friends and family members.

Why financial planning matters in a divorce

Both men and women in Nevada may benefit from having a financial plan in the event of a divorce. This is because women are increasingly becoming the breadwinners in a household or taking an active role in managing financial affairs.

Information related to a couple's assets and liabilities should be gathered and analyzed thoroughly.
