Matrimonial Planning after the New Tax Act

The Tax Cut Jobs Act of 2017 (“Act”) dramatically changed planning for matrimonial matters. While most practitioners are aware that the Act permanently changed the taxation of alimony for divorces after 2018 many other areas were affected, and there are a host of legal, tax and other issues to consider. These issues cannot be addressed in isolation by a tax or estate planner but will require coordination with a matrimonial attorney to address the practical and legal implication of the changes. To provide that guidance this program will be a duet by a matrimonial practitioner and estate/tax attorney to review the different perspectives and issues on each of the following:



  • What do you advise clients in the midst of a divorce now about the deadline on alimony?

  • What can clients who have prenuptial or post-nuptial agreements completed before the Act and who may not divorce until after 2018 address the provisions of existing agreements?

  • How will courts view all of the issues caused by the Act? What might be required to constitute changed circumstances for a court to re-open an existing divorce agreement?

  • Alimony trusts have been eliminated – what’s the impact?

  • Exemptions have been repealed temporarily. Many clients negotiated economic benefits for which spouse was to receive the benefit of exemptions, now what?

  • 529 plans could only be used in the past for college. Now $10,000/year can be used for elementary and secondary school. What impact does the law change have on existing divorce agreements? What about agreements that were silent on the matter because the issue did not exist?

  • How the SALT limitation and other changes might affect existing divorces?
