Tax Updates and Child Custody Concerns under Family Law

Staying up to date on current family law tax changes and child custody laws can assist in advocating for your clients.

In the ever-changing face of family dynamics, it can be hard for a family law practitioner to keep up with the changes in relevant case laws, statutes and theory that are changing just as quickly. The 2019 Family Law Updates and National Custody Considerations topic helps family law practitioners both understand and apply the recent changes in the family law arena. In addition, there are numerous tax changes under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that impact family law that will also be addressed. Awareness of these changes is critical for family practitioners to best advice and advocate for their clients.
