Tax Issues For Family Law Attorneys

Under Indiana Law when children and
child support are involved, the court order must address who receives the tax
exemption.  The Child Support Guidelines
and the statute on this issue conflict as the guidelines require the
noncustodial parent demonstrate the factors the court should consider.  You should follow the guidelines as they are
more stringent.  While most attorneys do
not give tax advice, family law practitioners should at least be able to
identify this issue.
