How Will Support Payments Affect Your Finances?
The way child support or spousal support (alimony) affects your personal finances hinges on your family’s unique situation. In general, however, child support is not taxable income for the recipient, but spousal support is. This does not, however, mean that anyone who pays child support or spousal support will get to claim the recipient as a dependent on his or her taxes. Everything is determined by your unique situation. At Sabharwal Law Offices, we can let you know what you need to take into account when it comes to support payments in California.
