Alimony, Divorce, Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, Internal Revenue Code, Internal Revenue Service, Tax law, Spousal support
In 2017 alone, over 750,000 American couples chose to divorce3.
Nationally, fifty percent of marriages end in divorce, with each of
these marriages lasting eight years, on average. Put another way,
a divorce occurs every 13 seconds, and each of those divorces is
expensive, with an average cost of approximately $15,000 per person.
