Generally, state law controls most aspects of divorce, including the determination of child support and property division. But there are areas including taxation of maintenance, interstate child support and travel, and uniform areas of law where federal or uniform laws control. Because of the impact of the changes in 2018 and 2019 regarding tax law and especially regarding maintenance, it is critical to understand the interplay between divorce issues and tax law. 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.
