Advising You Regarding Divorce and Potential Tax Consequences

At David M. Gabriel & Associates, we work hand-in-hand with a CPA to help clients form a beneficial strategy to divide assets, determine the payment of alimony and child support and plan for college tuition funding. We assist clients in performing an analysis of their respective incomes, taxes and liabilities. Then, we develop a practical plan that can be used in generating a separation agreement.

We will offer practical advice regarding the following tax issues that often arise in divorce:

  • Selling the marital home and any capital gains or losses that go with the sale
  • Contributions to 529 college savings plan

Qualified Domestic Relations Orders

A qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) is a court order required in certain situations to divide retirement or pension plans, allowing this property to be split in divorce. We draft QDROs and help clients divide their annuities, pensions and retirement plans. We help them avoid tax penalties that often arise as a result of the division itself.
