Regardless of bitterness and regret that can overwhelm a divorcing couple, most reasonable people, even under this pressure, understand the importance of preserving as many assets as possible for family members.

Skilled Representation from a NY Divorce Tax Attorney Serving Hudson Valley, New Paltz, & Kingston

An experienced family lawyer who has handled many high net worth and complex divorces such as yours will be able to deal with the complications cost-effectively. And a careful consideration of tax consequences of support and property division factors in your divorce decree may save a great deal for the spouses and any children involved.

I often need to remind my clients of the necessity to separate emotional issues from the purely business aspects of a divorce. One spouse or another may wish to cling to an asset such as “my pension” or an entitlement such as “my alimony” without considering the total financial picture that will emerge once all assets are divided and court orders are in place.

I also advise my clients to have a CPA review their divorce settlement agreements before signing them to alert them to any unexpected results of their division of assets in terms of taxable income or capital gains.

The marriage has already broken down. Aside from child custody issues, the rest of a divorce is in essence a business deal akin to the dissolution of a corporation. For this reason, it is essential that divorcing parties to pay close attention to the relationship between divorce and taxes. Talk to me to learn how I can help you arrive at a divorce agreement that preserves as many assets as possible for the family.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
