Creative Approach and Alternative Solutions
Michael Hines will take a creative approach to examining your case and your Alimony/Spousal Support claim in order to find ways to resolve issues and claims to your best advantage.

For example, while Alimony/Spousal Support is usually tax deductible to the payer and taxable to the recipient; that can be changed by agreement between the parties, so long as the proper notifications are made to the IRS.
