regular CLE hours for GA attorneys
seminar is continually evolving. It starts by condensing key issues on
explaining the basics about Income Shares child support guidelines,
traditional rebuttal arguments, and making sure you comply with procedures
for deviating. Underlying facts about selected deviation factors are
explained. Then the focus shifts to how to quickly build analysis and
exhibits for your Word documents for courtroom arguments.
updated seminar tools include a new Excel version of the deviation
calculator which covers more deviation factors. Importantly, you can
copy and paste all exhibits into Word!
- The seminar software now
includes an Excel version of the Fulton County version of Rule 24.2
domestic relations financial affidavit. As soon as you register
for this CLE class, the Excel Fulton County financial affidavit is
emailed to you—you can make life easier even before the seminar!
- Many deviations are
covered—ranging from travel expenses to day care tax credit to
parenting time to agreement of the parties among others. And many
special topics are covered such as child dependency exemptions and
appellate requirements for when the oldest child emancipates.
- However, a new area of
discussion is on the deviation for payment of the custodial parent’s
mortgage. This covers tax effects (which can improve combined
net income) and interaction with alimony. Yes, this goes a
little out of the box and IRS regulations on alimony likely are not
what you think. Just because the judge says it is alimony
doesn’t mean the IRS agrees.
