High-end divorce or otherwise, it is important to remember that there is no automatic expectation to pay or receive alimony, and no magic number in determining the amount of spousal support to be paid. Every family, every case is different.
At the Law Offices of Piazza, Simmons & Grant – Family Law, in Stamford, Connecticut, we treat each case in a unique way, personally tailoring our legal approach to your needs. Our attorneys understand that different needs require different approaches to help ensure the rights and interests of everyone — especially the children — are properly protected.
We generally use a list of state guidelines and fact-specific analysis to effectively determine how much alimony should be paid and by whom, taking into account a series of factors:
Alimony is deductible to the payer and taxable to the recipient, which is the opposite of child support. Child support is not a taxable event. At the Law Offices of Piazza, Simmons & Grant – Family Law we consider the related tax laws and recapture problems with the IRS when calculating alimony payments. If necessary, our lawyers partner with highly respected financial professionals to make sure that your interests are protected.
