However, there are a few areas, including taxation, interstate child support and travel, and uniform areas of law where federal or uniform laws control. In this section, The Gitlin Law Firm will discuss some tax aspects of divorce and other uniform and federal laws affecting family law. The information in these FAQs, while helpful, is not a substitute for advice of counsel.
