Divorce Lawyer Costs – 4 Costly Mistakes to Avoid

]]>

The overall cost of your divorce can be impacted by several behaviors you may be able to control. When a marriage dissolves there are several important topics that need to be addressed and sorted out such as child custody and visitation, division of property, and support. Recognizing the following 4 behaviors and how to manage them ahead of time may be able to help your divorce lawyer properly gather the information he/she needs to put your case together and can reduce your divorce costs at the same time.

(1) Having unclear objectives

(2) Being overly enmeshed in your case

(3) Using your lawyer as a therapist

(4) Expecting justice in the courts

Having unclear objectives

One of the biggest mistakes you can make at the outset of your divorce is to not know what it is you hope to accomplish. Before you begin filing or responding to divorce motions, you would be wise to discuss your goals, objectives, and what results you can likely expect with your divorce lawyer. Having such a discussion with your divorce lawyer can help reduce the chances of unnecessary litigation, help you understand what you can likely expect through your divorce, and what the costs may likely be.

Being overly enmeshed in your case

Divorce typically deals with topics that bring about high emotions and intensity, which may result in a spouse becoming overly indulged or enmeshed in his/her case. When this happens, it is not uncommon for a spouse to supply large amounts of irrelevant research material to his/her divorce lawyer, which can drive up the costs of attorney fees. Additionally, a spouse that is enmeshed in his/her case, may begin micromanaging their divorce lawyer’s work, which can create more work for his/her divorce lawyer and be counter productive. Setting clear objectives and goals and knowing what to expect from your divorce lawyer in advance can help reduce the tendency to become overly enmeshed in your case.

Using your lawyer as a therapist

Due to the high emotions that typically go along with divorce, it is not uncommon for spouses to begin venting or discussing problems they had in their marriage or how they feel about the other spouse with their divorce lawyer. Many times, these types of discussions are strictly emotionally based, add no value to the client’s case, and are discussion better suited for a therapist, not a divorce lawyer. Divorce lawyers are typically concerned with facts, not feelings. Additionally, the time a spouse spends in these types of emotional communications with his/her divorce lawyer can add up in costs very quickly. Before initiating communication with your divorce lawyer, decide if the communication is strictly to vent or to pass on worthwhile information on to him/her.

Expecting justice in the courts

Spouses many times believe that if they can just have their day in court, justice will prevail. Spouses who believe that the courts are going to give them justice are often misguided and end up extremely disappointed with the results. Better results and happier divorce endings are often accomplished through mediation and/or stipulated agreements. When a judge makes a decision, it is rarely a win-win decision for both spouses. To manage your expectations of justice in the family courts, you would be wise to consult your divorce lawyer to help you determine what results you can likely expect if your case goes to trial.

Like most states, the standard for child custody determinations in California is the overall best interest of the child with an emphasis on assuring the “health, safety, and welfare” of the child and “frequent and continuing contact” with both parents absent child abuse, domestic violence, or where the contact would not be in the best interest of the child.

“In the best interest of the child” or “child’s best interest” is the famous mantra of the family court, which is prevalent in child custody proceedings today, yet its interpretation by the family court or judges is often arbitrary and its meaning is still obscure. Moreover, the law regarding child custody varies from state to state leaving no uniform legal position regarding what is in the best interest of the child.

How to Think Like a Tax Lawyer: Be Aware of Costly Tax Evasion Schemes To Avoid IRS Tax Problems

Edit Article |

]]>

FACT: The IRS reports that tax evasion is a widespread problem that grows each year costing the government an estimated 0 billion in unpaid taxes and creating a tax gap that grows by 10% each year.

FACT: The additional tax burden falls on shoulders of honest Americans.

FACT: Public services that are supported by tax dollars are affected as well.

FACT: Buying into tax evasion schemes can and will be costly, either in civil or criminal penalties or both, even imprisonment.

The Internal Revenue Service has identified small business and sole proprietorship owners as the largest contributors to the tax gap. Without significant investigations, there is no way for the government to control skimming or non-reported income by individuals who are self-employed or run small businesses.

While there are huge tax evasion activities happening all over the world, it has been estimated that the United States Government has collected roughly 0 billion less than it is owed by American taxpayers. We’re already seeing the IRS cracking down on both small businesses and individuals who evade their taxes with an increase in  tax audits and aggressive collection tactics, including bank levies.

Tax evasion is not to be confused with tax avoidance. The biggest difference? One is legal, the other is a crime. Tax avoidance is when someone works within existing laws to pay the least amount of taxes that the IRS says are due. Tax evasion, on the other hand, is when someone intentionally works outside of existing laws by not paying the taxes that are owed to the IRS.

And you don’t have to be a tax lawyer to know the red flags that cause the IRS to suspect tax evasion. If you intentionally fail to report your business cash receipts, including checks that are cashed at the maker’s bank, the IRS has specific audit programs that will investigate this activity. Also, if the amount of income reported on your tax return far exceeds the previous year’s – you will be flagged as suspect! Additionally, if you are one of those “do-gooders”  that helps others to file fraudulent tax returns and accept payment for this… that could be a problem.

Tax evasion encompasses any cheating of the government in taxes. Tax evasion is a felony and can carry up to a 5-year prison sentence and/or IRS penalties up to 0,000. Even in the current enforcement climate, taxpayers can learn how to save money by taking advantage of legal tax deductions to reduce their IRS bill. Additionally, anyone who owes  back taxes or is being audited by the IRS will need to know that there are options for negotiating a tax resolution. Working with a tax resolution specialist or  tax lawyer can greatly increase your chances of successfully resolving your IRS tax problems. However, it’s important to be informed in the first place so you can avoid becoming a target of aggressive IRS collection efforts that can financially cripple you for life.

For more information on achieving a tax resolution for your IRS problems or back taxes, visit www.taxresolution.com for a free tax relief consultation or call 866-IRS-PROBLEMS.

Nation?s Leading Tax Relief Firm Advises Against Costly Tax Evasion Schemes





Tax Attorney and Tax Resolution Services


Encino, CA (Vocus) June 9, 2010

Every day, in cities across the country, people are being prosecuted or convicted of tax crimes. According to tax expert Michael Rozbruch, if you’re struggling during these tough economic times and need IRS tax relief, there are many options to consider for resolving your back taxes or other IRS woes.

Tax evasion is not just a problem for the wealthy. The IRS reports that tax evasion is a widespread problem costing the government an estimated 0 billion in unpaid taxes and creating a tax gap that grows by 10% each year. However, with federal initiatives aimed at narrowing the tax gap, the IRS is cracking down on tax evaders both big and small.

“There is a big difference between tax evasion and tax avoidance,” said Rozbruch, founder and CEO of Tax Resolution Services, Co., a company that provides affordable solutions to people seeking IRS tax relief. “While it is perfectly legal to work within existing laws to avoid paying more than what is required by the IRS, cheating the government on taxes by evading tax laws is criminal and can carry up to a 5-year prison sentence and/or IRS penalties up to 0,000.”

And you don’t have to be a tax attorney to know the red flags that will cause the IRS to be suspicious of tax evasion, Robzruch adds. Even in the current enforcement climate, taxpayers can learn how to avoid IRS tax audits and save money by taking advantage of legal tax deductions and avoiding costly IRS penalties and interest.

“It’s important for taxpayers to avoid becoming targets of aggressive IRS collection efforts like debilitating bank levies that can financially cripple them for life,” Rozbruch said. “Additionally, anyone who owes back taxes or is being audited by the IRS will need to know that working with a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist or tax lawyer can greatly increase their chances of successfully resolving their IRS tax problems and negotiating a settlement for the lowest amount allowed by law.”

Tax Resolution Services, Co. is dedicated to providing affordable solutions to businesses and individuals alike who find themselves in trouble with the IRS. Their expert team of tax attorneys, CPAs, and Certified Tax Resolution Specialists has a success rate of 90% – second to none in the industry – and an Offer in Compromise Settlement Rate of .11 on the dollar.

Industry Luminaries Launch Entertainment Mediation Institute (EMI), to Bypass Costly Litigation and Resolve Conflicts Cost Effectively, Quickly and Confidentially

Beverly Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) March 8, 2010

Leaders from every segment of the entertainment industry have joined forces to create the Entertainment Mediation Institute, LLC (EMI), the first-ever organization dedicated exclusively to resolving disputes among parties in the entertainment industry, including the motion picture, television, cable, music, sports, legitimate stage, literary and other sectors. EMI offers a powerhouse of expert mediators with deep roots in all industry specialties who can help resolve entertainment-related disputes in a confidential, non-confrontational and private manner.

“Litigation is expensive, time-consuming, frustrating and often quite unproductive,” said James S. Mulholland, a well-known entertainment attorney and co-founder and co-managing director of EMI. “There has been a compelling need for a trusted alternate dispute resolution process in the entertainment industry that can move cases forward to a swift, successful and confidential conclusion.

“Historically, formal mediation has not been widely used in the industry, but more recently it has come to the fore as the most effective and cost-efficient strategy to settle disputes while protecting relationships.

Unlike arbitration or litigation which can drag on for months or even years, EMI mediations can be set up in a matter of weeks and often can achieve a resolution of the dispute in a day or two,” he added.

Mulholland pointed out that recent budget cuts have led to a number of courtroom closures resulting in a substantial backlog of cases in the Los Angeles Superior Court which has added even more cost and time to litigation. In an effort to speed conflict resolution, the Court now requires most litigants to engage in mediation and more than 50 percent of assigned cases are resolved through this process. Those who engage in private mediation by contract or voluntary mediation before litigation generally experience a far higher success rate, often exceeding 80 percent, according to Mulholland.

A former board member of FILMEX and 30-year veteran entertainment lawyer who has represented major individual and corporate entertainment clients, Mulholland joined forces with Senator Charles M. Calderon to co-found Entertainment Mediation Institute. Calderon is former Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Entertainment, the Senate Judiciary Committee and the California Judicial Council, who currently serves as a member of the Legislative Committee on Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism & Internet Media. They recruited high-profile industry leaders from studios, production companies, talent agencies, entertainment law firms, guilds and other organizations to provide a significant alternative to former judges or other non-industry mediators without relevant knowledge or hands-on entertainment experience.

Senator Calderon noted, “Our EMI mediation team’s vast experience in very specialized entertainment industry sectors will be invaluable in bringing disputing parties together to develop potentially win/win outcomes. This allows the principals to get back to their regular business activities without the disruption and expense of long drawn-out litigation and very public trials. Further, EMI is dedicated to achieving results that preserve important and long-standing industry relationships without public damage to either party’s business or reputation.”

In addition to Mulholland and Calderon, the charter panel of EMI senior mediators includes: Ron Mardigian, former William Morris senior vice president and head of the West Coast motion picture literary department; David Braun, a highly regarded, heavyweight music and entertainment attorney; Irwin Russell, a major entertainment attorney, well-respected production executive and former Disney board member; Claire L. Rothman, former president of the Forum and executive vice president of Ticketmaster; Ralph Kamon, entertainment counsel for United Artists for 14 years and senior vice president and entertainment counsel for Paramount Pictures for over 25 years; David Wardlow, previously a senior agent at Chasin-Park-Citron, a subsidiary of International Creative Management (ICM), and senior vice president and head of world-wide production at United Artists Corporation, currently president of Wardlow & Associates; Gregory Bernstein, former vice president of Columbia Pictures and vice president of TriStar Pictures, as well as a former WGA senior executive and a screenwriter for the past 16 years; Fred Kuperberg, recently retired executive vice president, business and legal affairs, Disney/ABC Cable Networks Group where he served as general counsel for over 20 years; and former Senator Steve Peace, a motion picture and television producer, San Diego Padres board member and former Chief Financial Officer for the State of California.

EMI’s Executive Director Priscilla Wardlow holds a Harvard MBA and is a former vice president of Honeywell, Inc., and principal consultant to PricewaterhouseCoopers.
