Estate planning when getting divorced

If you are like most people who get divorced in Tennessee, you will experience a wide variety of emotions as you work through the many decisions and changes to come. Sometimes, there are so many things to focus on that you only have the energy for the ones that seem the most urgent or important to your future. However, it is important to think about what really is in that important category.

How can I deal with stress related to my divorce?

Making decisions during a divorce is rarely easy. Even if you and your ex are in agreement on most issues, chances are you’ll experience a great deal of stress as a result of the dissolution of your marriage. Coping with stress in a healthy and meaningful way is crucial, as illustrated by Live About.

Pay attention to divorce document dates

Going through a divorce in Tennessee can be a very confusing experience under any circumstances. Divorce matters can become even more confusing for our clients at Parker and LaDuke as the laws continue to change. During this transitional time, you probably want to pay close attention to the timeframe in which you have filed your documents. A new law is going to effect as of Jan. 1st, 2019 that could cost some people a lot more money in their divorce settlements because the rules about how alimony or spousal maintenance relates to your taxes are changing due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
