Will tax reform end deductions for alimony?

As with any proposed federal legislation, the recently unveiled Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is complex and lengthy. Piercing that veil has already revealed that with every benefit to efforts to reform, there are drawbacks. Some taxpayers will see relief while others will carry a heavier financial burden.

Divorced couples currently negotiating alimony agreements could suffer negative effects if the current bill becomes law, regardless of who pays and who receives support.

Honoring our loyal and talented staff

At DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC, our lifeblood is the numerous employees whose respective tenures can be counted in years, not months or weeks. Their loyalty and hard work have brought success to our law firm and much-needed stability for our client base.

While the year is not over and we will be celebrating more anniversaries in the waning months of 2017, we want to take the time and recognize several of these dedicated and valued members of the DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC family.

The growing trend of grandparents becoming parents

When a grandparent takes over custody of their children's children, the circumstances surrounding the change are usually dire. Oftentimes, the loss of their own children who were parents while they were alive forces grandparents to step up. On other occasions, an unsafe household require that grandchildren be put into a more secure and nurturing environment.

Grandparents raising their grandchildren are becoming a growing segment of the population, regardless of the reasons surrounding the change.

The time is now to update Arizona’s outdated family law statutes

Updating Arizona’s laws to reflect same-sex couples’ rights to marry has been slow in coming. The language reflects a different time with references to husbands, fathers, and even gestation periods.

A recent ruling by the state’s Supreme Court gave the effort a much-needed boost.
