Yes, hiring an appraiser is important during divorce

On behalf of Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law posted on Friday, May 24, 2019. When you're going to get a divorce, one of the things that you should do is have your assets assessed for their values. While you know what you purchased certain items for, their values may have changed over time. Certain assets must be appraised, including homes, rental properties and businesses. Other items, like artwork or antiques, may also be worth more than you expect, so seeking an appraisal is a good idea. Who should get an appraisal on your marital assets? Both you and your spouse should [...]

The adoption home study doesn’t have to be stressful

On behalf of Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law on Thursday, May 9, 2019. Whether you are a first-time father or just want to expand your family, adoption can be a rewarding way to become a parent. Unlike typical child custody matters in which you are a biological parent, people outside your family and the court must approve your becoming a parent to a child currently without one. For this reason, one may conduct a home study in order to help ensure that the child you want to adopt is going into a safe, loving and healthy home. This often represents [...]

Proving paternity is essential for unwed fathers

On behalf of Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law posted in Fathers' Rights on Friday, May 10, 2019. Fathers should not be forced out of their children's lives as a result of a mother's wishes. Sadly, many unmarried men face struggles when trying to obtain custody or visitation time with their children. One of the things that unmarried men should remember is that women will retain custody of their children when they're unmarried. Unless there is proof of your paternity and you exercise your right to visitation, there will be no way for you to obtain access to your child. If the woman [...]

Consider a second-parent adoption if you’re not married

On behalf of Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law posted in family law on Tuesday, April 9, 2019. There are some people who decide they don't ever want to get married, but they're committed to their partners. While that's completely up to that couple, it can be more complicated if they choose to adopt. Single people can adopt, and so can married couples. What about unmarried couples, though? While they're allowed to adopt, there are some additional hoops they may have to jump through. In your case, if you'd like to adopt but are not married, you should consider a co-parent or second-parent adoption. [...]

Changes to tax laws impact divorce settlements

On behalf of Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law posted in Divorce on Thursday, April 25, 2019. In 2019, tax changes have significantly impacted divorce settlements. In 2018, it was announced that alimony would be taxed, and that meant that anyone who finalized a divorce in 2019 would face new tax liabilities. The spouses who pay alimony can't deduct alimony on their taxes any longer, and those who receive it don't have to claim it as income. Unfortunately, taking away the tax break has impacted people's alimony payments and made it harder to arrange alimony during a divorce. Of course, not having this tax [...]

Can you find your spouses’ hidden offshore accounts?

On behalf of Philip A. Greenberg, P.C., Attorneys at Law on Thursday, May 2, 2019. If you suspect that your spouse is hiding assets during your divorce, it is understandable to feel frustrated. Decades ago, people tried any number of tricks to hide their money. One was to open a secret offshore account when they felt trouble in their relationship. Once upon a time, it was difficult to track down these accounts. It took insider connections and mysterious business trips to set them up. They were usually an exclusive item for the wealthy. Few accounts were required to report to the IRS. [...]
