It's not simply a matter of 'how much' money a couple has, but rather, what many people experience are disagreements over how to manage debt, long-time security in terms of income and retirement, financial priorities, and so forth.
Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) April 14, 2016
Financial issues and disagreements over money are one of the leading causes of divorce, and this comes to the forefront each springtime during tax season, as unexpected expenses and the problems which come with them can mount. Through the end of April, the Law Offices of Brandon Bernstein is offering prospective clients in the state of Maryland extended seasonal free consultations in the form of one-hour, one-on-one sit downs for individuals who believe that tax problems and resulting financial disarray have led them down the road towards divorce.
The Law Offices of Brandon Bernstein, a Maryland family law office, routinely works with clients who cite money and finances as a primary cause for martial conflicts. These arguments and points of contention may eventually lead to separation and divorce as a result.
"This time of year is particularly and financially difficult for people all across the country, and that often has a direct impact not only on their bank accounts, but on their personal relationships, including their marriage," stated Brandon Bernstein, a three-time Super Lawyers Rising Star as a divorce lawyer in Maryland, and the principal of the Law Offices of Brandon Bernstein.
"It's not simply a matter of 'how much' money a couple has, but rather, what many people experience are disagreements over how to manage debt, long-time security in terms of income and retirement, financial priorities in terms of saving goals versus currently lifestyle choices, and so forth. Add in unexpected taxes or mounting back taxes and problems quickly multiply."
Finances also are front and center at many divorce cases. Issues such as child support and alimony, along with dividing assets including bank accounts, investments, real property, and retirement funds, are often fiercely argued over.
In other instances, they're still a factor if a case is handled out of the courtroom, via divorce mediation, or if finances were addressed prior to the marriage in the form of a prenuptial agreement. Another concern is how to handle filing taxes during a separation or divorce, including what status to choose, and determining which party can claim certain dependents and exemptions.
Tax season is difficult enough on its own, and when financial troubles turn into marital troubles, it's important to have an experienced advocate to offer guidance and advice. Maryland residents may contact Maryland divorce attorney Brandon Bernstein at 240.395.1418 with any questions, or to schedule an extended seasonal consultation.
