Cathy Hazel Adams Quantum Multidimensional Energetic Healing to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CASPER, WYOMING, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As vibrational beings, we each have infinite potential for love, creativity, health, and a joyful, satisfying life. In her transformational sessions, Cathy helps her clients move out of vibrational alignment with the fear, self-doubt, negative expectation and limiting beliefs that result in illness, pain, depression and struggle, and into resonance with the energetic patterns of flow, joy, creativity, health and well-being.

Cathy is the founder of Cathy Hazel Adams, LLC, an energy healing practice specializing in intuitive, quantum, multidimensional energetic transformation and healing. She is also a teacher, mentor, intuitive energetic life coach, and a Matrix Energetics® Certified Practitioner.

According to Cathy, all of our experiences – the state of our bodies, our health, our relationships, finances, and life events – are the result, or projection, of our own inner patterns of conscious energy. Our ideas, attitudes, thoughts, feelings, expectations and intentions all combine to form an energetic source pattern, or blueprint, that directly shapes the quality, experiences, circumstances and events of our lives.

“The good news is that, when our life isn’t as enjoyable and satisfying as we know it could be, we can edit the contents of our energetic blueprint and start living our true, best possible life.”

Using her intuitive abilities and applying well-known principles of quantum physics, Cathy clairvoyantly connects with her clients and facilitates change at all levels of their energetic blueprints. “I’m perceiving the ideas clients hold – the helpful ones and the not-so-helpful ones, as well as their mental and emotional bodies, the energetic template of their physical bodies, including structure, cellular memory and DNA correction, and familial, and even soul-level, patterns.”

“This is live, real-time transformation. I go with them into resonance with their best possibilities.”

“It’s all about which version of yourself are you tuning into. All possible versions and variations of ourselves and our lives are available to us in an infinite present, in the quantum field of possibility. When we understand that, we can literally effect miracles.”

“When you live in a state of love and well-being, the people around you automatically start vibrating in a more free, love-based, creative, joyful version of themselves.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Cathy Hazel Adams in an interview with Jim Masters on January 7th at 12pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Volusia SHRM Chapter Announces Tom Fulmer to speak on Marijuana Legislation Relating to the Workplace Jan. 16th Meeting

Marijuana Legislation & Workplace Drug Testing which will focus on both recreational and medical marijuana issues in the workplace.

Medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are hot topics in today's workplaces; I look forward to helping employers better understand how to protect their company and maintain a safe workplace.”

— Tom Fulmer

MELBOURNE, FL, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Volusia/Flagler Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management announces that Tom Fulmer, Vice President of Business Development for National Drug Screening, Inc. and former professional speaker will be presenting at the 2019 Chapter meeting in Daytona Beach Florida.

The topic for the January Chapter meeting Clearing the Haze: Marijuana Legislation & Workplace Drug Testing which will focus on both recreational and medical marijuana issues in the workplace. The meeting is being held at the LPGA International Clubhouse 1000 Champions Drive, Daytona Beach, FL 32124. Check in and networking begins at 7:45 am with the meeting beginning at 8:00 am and ending at 9:30 am.

When asked about the program, Tom Fulmer stated, “Many people have heard of medical marijuana or recreational marijuana and attempts at the Federal level to make marijuana legal and there are debates on both sides about whether marijuana should be legal. No matter what your position or opinion though, business owner or managers, have decisions to make and those should be made sooner rather later. Otherwise, they may be exposing themselves to liability.” Some of the points that Tom will address include how marijuana laws may affect the company and its’ policies, recent court cases and their impact on the workplace, the types of drug testing you can and should be utilizing, and implications and potential pitfalls of keeping or dropping Marijuana from a workplace testing program.

As of November 2018, Recreational marijuana is legal in 10 states and medical marijuana is legal in 33 states. The laws vary greatly from state to state and court cases have added additional complexity to the mix. Combine that with the fact the Marijuana is illegal federally and that leaves many employers uncertain what to do.

WE NEED TO ELECT THE PRESIDENT WHO WILL GO ALL OUT IN TRANSFORMING AMERICA INTO A WISE SOCIETY.

Know the Level of Your brain You Are Living From.

Know and Harness the Difference Between Your Brain and Mind.

Wisdom Education is Brain Health Education; Where Wisdom Land is a Start...

Our Education System Has Cutting Edge Mind Education While Brain Education Is Under the Radar Screen.

Actualize your Brain Power.

The brain is a vessel that stores good and bad.

We need a leader who will work on the premise that the key to a thriving, healthy, happy, prosperous and peaceful America is an emotionally healthy America.

We need to elect a president who runs on the slogan, 'Making America wise is our fundamental goal'. Focus has to shift from teaching wisdom to healing the self-image into wisdom via emotional health.”

— Sajid Khan.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is no doubt that there are several genuine leaders who deserves to win the White House on the grounds that they are dedicated leaders who want to do everything possible to help all the America people to prosper in every way. The problem is that the tools at their disposal to improve lives are based on defective expertise that is provided by our so-called experts. Since ancient times it is well known that wisdom is the key to all great societies. Unfortunately there is so much confusion about wisdom that mainstream experts dare not even suggest that the main task of our future president should be making the American society as wise as humanly possible. Yet wisdom is the key to getting rid of the ills of America.

Every single problem like drug addictions, divorce, tiredness, education mess, crime, sleeplessness, unhappiness, corruption, discrimination, prejudice, hatred, violence etc. are all due to lack of wisdom. Our leaders and their expert teams must recognize that this lack of wisdom is the fundamental problem facing America. Only by providing wisdom can the White House leadership tackle these problems and replace them with a mostly drug free, good binding relationships, relaxation, rest, excellent education, crime free, sound sleep, happy, honest, loving and peaceful America. So the question is how do our leaders make America wise?

For the last few decades our experts have realized that to get rid of the above ills what we need is emotional intelligence. However our experts have again misdefined emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is wisdom and like wisdom emotional intelligence is not an independent entity. One can even say that emotional intelligence is an attribute of wisdom. Emotional intelligence is a fragrance that springs from wisdom. It is because our experts wrongly consider emotional intelligence as an independent entity, they try to teach it directly. Naturally there is as much success in teaching emotional intelligence as in teaching wisdom and so our society is as messed up as ever. Emotional intelligence springs from emotional health(EH). In fact America is the #1 emotionally challenged country in the world. What would you expect when Emotional Health(EH) is 50% of health and yet there is no testing and no manual for emotional health. What is worse is that EI and EH are messed up in ignorance. Our experts like Orpah and Daniel Goleman are pushing for EI when EI is the smoke and EH is the fire. We need leaders that will take corrective action. The leader we need is going to stop addressing the symptoms and start addressing the disease.

Another mistake that our experts make is they try to teach emotional intelligence to the mind. The mind itself is a fragrance of the brain and it is very difficult to improve a fragrance by educating the fragrance! However as the mind is a self-conscious fragrance educating the mind does result in, 'mind-washing' and so some improvement does take place through very gradually. What our experts need to recognize is that the mind is a fragrance of the brain and that to make the mind wise it is the emotional brain that needs to be healed into a generator of wisdom.

We need a leader who will introduce EH testing of all, the young and the old and Wise parenting classes for the newly weds and future parents. As well as brain therapy for those older who need their emotional health fixed.

I have published hundreds of articles, papers and blogs explaining this ignorance of our experts and its solution, please google, 'sajid wisdom' to review my path to a wise America. Here are some of the relevant articles: (If the link is broken then please copy and paste the title)

Crimcheck Employment Background Service Created to Eliminate Resume Falsification

BRUNSWICK, OH, USA, January 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 20, 2018

https://crimcheck.net/

Crimcheck Employment Background Service Created to Eliminate Resume Falsification

Brunswick, Ohio: Studies show that over half of all resumes include incorrect or falsified information. In order to help employers avoid making serious hiring errors, Crimcheck provides comprehensive background checks and education verification to simplify and improve the onboarding process. With just a few pieces of information provided by the applicant via text message, they can handle the entire pre-screening process. This leaves your company to focus on what it does best rather than tracking down obscure employment and personal histories.

“Crimcheck utilizes experienced investigators and customer support specialists who assemble a comprehensive background check, not a packaged criminal database, to give you easy results that fit your company’s specific needs to recruit the talent your brand deserves.”

Crimcheck’s highly qualified staff of experts feature a diverse background to cover dozens of industries. Their eFetch customer management portal allows for simple and seamless request tracking, payments, and reporting. Handling pre-screening and education verification for companies in over 20 different industries, Crimcheck is among the select 2% of all background screening companies accredited by the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS). In order to catch information the National Crime Database does not, Crimcheck investigates criminal cases from over 10,000 local courts and 3,500 county courts in all 50 states.

In this age of fraud, product liability, and workplace litigation, failing to properly screen all potential employees is risky and reckless. Joining forces with a meticulous background check service that can help verify all key information before regrettable decisions are made can be the difference between adding key long-term team members and spending valuable time embroiled in costly lawsuits.

About Crimcheck

Long established as a leader in the industry, Crimcheck simplifies the hiring process by offering professional background service checks and education verification. With over 25 years’ experience, they employ real investigators and customer support specialists to assemble a comprehensive background check rather than packaged results. Nationally accredited and highly respected within the industry, their standardized pre-screening processes provide fast, accurate results to help companies hire wisely and protect them from future litigation.

Microduino is proud to attend CES again this year to showcase their STEM/STEAM educational products and receive their KAPi Award for Best Maker Spirit.

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the spirit of making STEM/STEAM available to all students, makers, tinkerers and educators, Microduino, a manufacturer of stackable electronic building blocks and related accessories and peripherals, will be an exhibitor at CES again this year. Visitors to their booth – #44267 at the Sands – will experience an impressive array of products they have developed and manufactured to inspire creativity, while teaching coding, logical thinking and problem solving. Come and visit them to see the following:

1. Itty Bitty Buggy is the KAPi Award winner this year for Best Maker Spirit. Buggy is truly a code programmable toy (CPT). It’s smart, easy to use and programmable with Scratch via a PC/Mac and Chromebook. Kids come to understand the power that coding has on a physical device by modifying the programs; a great beginning STEAM toy for younger kids. Buggy is colorful, fun and can be made into a sloth, dodo bird, ladybug and alien.

2. Itty Bitty City is the sister companion to Itty Bitty Buggy and is also based on Microduino’s mCookie technology. Users can build the projects provided but can also easily create and program their own projects, integrating other form factors, such as 3D, using Microduino’s mounting design files.

3. Sequencing series for STEAM is appropriate for kids in elementary school through high school. Kids learn how to assemble basic circuitry with mPuzzle and move on to hardware coding with mPie. These programs provide colorful learning materials for teachers and students. Itty Bitty Buggy and Itty Bitty City show students where STEAM is heading via intelligent CPU-based projects.

4. MIX Kits 1, 2, 3 & 4 is how kids reinforce using logic and problem solving through the introduction of new components that expand their knowledge and skill set. With over 1,000 pages of project-based lesson plans combined, Microduino’s MIX kits serve a dual purpose: great for school hackathons and IoT projects, too.

“Providing STEAM toys that are easy to build, most within 5-10 minutes, and inspiring creativity in children, is one of our main goals. We are passionate about encouraging young people to develop their problem-solving skills, tap into their ability to use logic and learn coding, all at the same time.” said Bin Feng, CEO and Co-Founder of Microduino. “Visitors to our space will see and experience why hardware is part of our product line and why we use open source coding. It just makes sense. We think STEAM is all about having fun while learning the physical results of virtual thinking.”

Microduino is best known for their products such as the mCookie series; a series of small, stackable, and Arduino-compatible electronic building blocks. Their collection of easy-to-use, snap-together magnetic components, without the need for messy wiring or soldering puts them on the cutting edge of STEM/STEAM technology. Their slogan, “Creativity Is Contagious” was selected because of the multiple projects that can be made with their product kits; there are no limits to one’s imagination!

Harris Institute Celebrates 30th

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Harris Institute Celebrates 30th

In 1989 Toronto’s Harris Institute introduced the first accelerated one-year diploma programs taught by award winning leaders. Its goal was to strengthen the Canadian music industry and prepare graduates for lifelong careers in music. At that time the music industry had begun a dramatic decline.

Thirty years later, Harris Institute graduates are in leadership roles in every area of an expanding Canadian music industry. They have established a wide range of successful companies and have won or were nominated for 247 awards in the last 2 years.

Over 60% of the current 62 faculty members have won awards in their subject area. Twenty-one of them have been at Harris Institute for more than 20 years and 11 are honours graduates from the institute.

In 1994 the college relocated from its original 3,200 sq.ft. campus to a 15,000 sq.ft. industrial building designed in 1908 by Massey Hall’s architect George M. Miller. It repurposed the building for education and included three recording studios designed by world-renowned studio designer and founding faculty member Martin Pilchner.

Starting in 1997, Harris Institute delivered six annual ‘Peace and Reconciliation’ programs, funded by the International Fund for Ireland, to groups of 20 young adults from conflicted areas in the North and South of Ireland.

In 2005 the college expanded its accelerated approach by establishing an unprecedented partnership with the University of the West of Scotland offering the option to earn a diploma and a BA or BSc degree in 20 months. In 2015 the partnership was further expanded to offer 2 diplomas and a Master’s Degree in 32 months. The degrees are awarded with full scholarships and the Master’s Degrees include partial scholarships.

In 2006, Harris Institute partnered with the Moscow International Film School and the Gulf Islands Film & Television School to deliver an experimental program for 24 indigenous youth from Siberia and British Columbia’s Salmon Arm Reserve.

For 10 years starting in 2007, with the support of the Ontario Ministry of Culture and the Ontario Media Development Corporation, the college offered weekend professional development courses for mid career professionals.

In a partnership with Nashville’s ProMedia Training, Harris Institute introduced the first Certified Avid Pro Tools courses in Canada.

Harris Institute was the only school featured in Billboard Magazine’s ‘Top 11 Schools’ and Mix Magazine’s ‘Audio Education’s Finest’. It was ranked best private school for a 6th year in the 2018 ‘Media Arts Education Report’.

It is the only post secondary school in North America to have achieved 4 annual 0% Student Loan Default Rates. Its Arts Management Program has achieved 8 annual 0% Default Rates and the Audio Production Program has achieved 6.

In 2015, Harris Institute was the first post secondary school to introduce a comprehensive ‘Political Correctness Policy’ that ensured free speech and the open exchange of ideas.

Since 1989 International students have come from 142 countries. In 2018 students came from 9 US States and 19 countries.

In 2018 the college’s founder John Harris received the Cashbox Legacy Award as a Canadian music industry builder and he was featured in an FYI Music News cover story titled “The Man Who Breeds Success”.

Harris Institute is celebrating its 30th anniversary by offering $30K in scholarships for programs starting on March 25 and July 15, 2019.

What are the thirty tools and techniques you need to use to be calm, focused and confident when the pressure is on? Master these and you will stay in the zone.

In order to perform your best, you need to understand what the zone is and what you need to do change to get there more often.”

— Jay P. Granat, Ph.D., Psychotherapist, Author, Founder, StayInTheZone.com

RIVER EDGE, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, January 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Thirty Things You Need To Do To Perform Your Best
And Stay In The Zone

If you’re a sales person, a manager, an entrepreneur, a trial lawyer, weekend warrior or a professional athlete, you frequently an edge to perform to your fullest potential.

What Is The Zone?

And in order to perform your best, you need to know how to be relaxed, how to be confident, how to stay in the present, how to remain focused and how to enjoy the challenge. In addition, you need to quiet self-criticism and self -doubt. You also need to trust your mental and physical abilities.

“In short, the zone is a state of relaxed concentration where there is no self-criticism. You are confident ,relaxed, focused and living in the present. Furthermore, there is a sense of enjoyment and an increased belief that your dreams can become realities. Once know what you zone is and what you need to change, you can get there more often," says Dr. Jay Granat, psychotherapist, author and founder of www.StayInTheZone.com

Thirty Tools You Need To Use Effectively To Stay In The Zone

Dr. Granat has worked with thousands of world class athletes, young athletes and weekend warriors.

He has recently developed at simple questionnaire and rating system that can help you to get into the zone more frequently and perform your best when the pressure is on.

Here are the questions.

Simply rate yourself from 1-10 on each of the questions.

You can use ratings from zero to ten and you can use decimal points.

1. How confident do you feel?
2. How relaxed do you feel?
3. How focused do you feel?
4. How well have you been practicing?
5. How resilient do you feel?
6. How well do you sleep the night before a competition?
7. Are your eating, sleeping and exercising patterns in balance with one another?
8. How much fun do you have when you compete?
9. Can you quiet self -criticism?
10. Do you engage in positive self-talk?
11. Are you able to tune out distractions?
12. Are you able to stay in the present?
13. Do you have pre-shot routines that you consistently use?
14. Do you have a “Plan B,” if your “A Game” is not working?
15. Do you follow and eating regime that makes sense for your body?
16. Are you injury free?
17. Can you empty your mind and trust your athletic body?
18. Can you quiet your mind to focus on just one thing?
19. Are you injury free?
20. Are you able to control any interpersonal problems or stressors?
21. Do you use a simple mantra, phrase or tune to reset your mind and your body?
22. Do you know how to recover from a loss, setback or slump?
23. For young athletes-How is your relationship with your parents?
24. Have you seen yourself on video in the last ninety days?
25. Are you grateful for your opportunity to master a sport or a skill?
26. Do you have a technique to move from choking to the zone?
27. Are you having fun competing and practicing?
28. Can you manage the highs and lows that are a part of any challenge?
29. How is your relationship with your coaches, teammates, colleagues?
30. Do you practice meditation, visualization, guided imagery or visualization prior to competing and when you practice?

“Ideally, I like to see athletes with scores of 8.5 on most of the above. Being eighty five per cent ready, is usually enough to produce fine performances. So, a perfect score on this test is about 255. If you get this score, there is a good chance that you are in a mental frame of mind that will allow you to perform well.

If you discover weaknesses that are causing you to lose matches and tournaments, you need to develop strategies and techniques to overcome these deficiencies.

It is hard to make these kinds of changes on your own. A sport psychologist, coach or mentor can often be quite helpful in building confidence, reducing anxiety, improving focus and in showing you how to enter the zone more often.

If your scores are very low, you can probably benefit from some counseling, mental toughness training or training in self-hypnosis,” says Dr. Granat.

The founder of www.StayInTheZone.com, Dr. Granat has coached athletes from virtually every sport from around the world.

Extraordinary Teacher revered in New Biography

Trip to Puerto Rico

The Unlikely Journey of a Teacher Extraordinaire

Simmonds’ biography weaves disparate threads from Russia, China, Chile, France, St. Kitts into a vibrant tapestry revealing a fiercely independent woman dedicated to the education of children.”

— Ira Sumner Simmonds

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, January 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Extraordinary Teacher Revered in New Biography 'FROM SIBERIA TO ST KITTS: A Teacher's Journey'
Author and educator Ira Simmonds reveals the remarkable story of Zenaida Katzen, an extraordinary teacher who made a difference.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – January 1, 2019 – Author Ira Sumner Simmonds' new book, 'FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey,' is a captivating and deeply researched biography of Zenaida Katzen, a master of foreign language instruction who embraced a comprehensive approach to teaching. Simmonds was a student of Katzen's in the 1960s on the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, and after his retirement from 25 years with the New York City public school system, he was compelled to learn all he could about the special woman who inspired him to become an educator.

When she arrived in St. Kitts in 1961 to teach French and Spanish to teenagers (mostly boys), Zenaida Katzen (Zina) had already lived an extraordinary life in Siberia, China, France and Chile. What Simmonds uncovered during his five years of painstaking research is the complex story of a dynamic, driven, independent woman who dedicated her life to education and advancing the lives of children.

Zina Katzen wasn't simply a French teacher or a Spanish teacher – she was an educator who believed in providing students with an experience while they were learning. In St. Kitts, she organized activities and programs outside the classroom, and was able to secure funding from a wealthy friend in China who supported her work. A chapter of Simmonds' book includes letters between Zina and her benefactor, offering a unique perspective into how Zina carefully managed the financial, educational and extracurricular needs of her students, and revealing a more personal side of Zina – an animal lover who was devoted to her mother and aunt, both of whom lived with her in St. Kitts.

Simmonds' story is beautifully written, thorough and includes photos of Zina, her students, friends, family and the places where she lived and taught. Thoughtfully placed throughout the narrative are French phrases and words, which contribute to the cadence of the story, and lend authenticity to its message.

"Everyone had a teacher who touched his or her life in a special way," says Simmonds. "I spent five years on a research journey traveling to Chile, Hong Kong, Shanghai, St. Kitts and France. I wrote the book to tell the world about this teacher extraordinaire who has profoundly touched the lives of an untold number of students in China, Chile and the Caribbean."

'FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey' is published in paperback and ebook format by ISS Publishing and is now available on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com.

Review copies of 'FROM SIBERIA TO ST. KITTS: A Teacher's Journey' are available to media contacts upon request. Ira Simmonds is available for interviews.

Are you mentally ready for your next golf tournament, your next tennis match or your next sporting event? Take this test and find out if you are in the zone.

“Ideally, I like to see athletes with scores of 8.5 on most of the above. Being eighty five per cent ready, is usually enough to produce fine performances.”

— Jay P. Granat, Ph.D., Psychotherapist, Author, Founder, StayInTheZone.com

RIVER EDGE, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, January 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In order to play to your potential in golf or in tennis, you need to know how to how stay confident, how to stay relaxed and how to stay focused. In short, you need to know how to get into the zone and stay there.

According to Jay P. Granat, Ph.D. a psychotherapist, author and founder of www.StayInTheZone.com, there is a simple questionnaire and rating system that can help you to determine if you are in the zone, mentally tough and ready to compete effectively at golf or at tennis or at any other individual sport.

Here are the questions.

Simply rate yourself from 1-10 on each of the questions.

You can use ratings from zero to ten and you can use decimal points.

1. How confident do you feel?
2. How relaxed do you feel?
3. How focused do you feel?
4. How well have you been practicing?
5. How resilient do you feel?
6. How well do you sleep the night before a competition?
7. How is your relationship with your coach or coaches?
8. How much fun do you have when you compete?
9. Can you quiet self -criticism?
10. Do you engage in positive self-talk?
11. Are you able to tune out distractions?
12. Are you able to stay in the present?
13. Do you have pre-shot routines that you consistently use?
14. Do you have a “Plan B,” if your A game is not working?
15. Do you follow and eating regime that makes sense for your body?
16. Are you injury free?
17. Can you empty your mind and trust your athletic body?
18. Can you quiet your mind to focus on just one thing?
19. Are you injury free?
20. Are you able to control any interpersonal problems or stressors?
21. Do you use a simple mantra, phrase or tune to reset your mind and your body?
22. Do you know how to recover from a loss, setback or slump?
23. For young athletes-Is everything good between you and your parents?
24. Have you seen yourself on video in the last ninety days?
25. Have you been practicing well?
26. Do you have a technique to move from choking to the zone?
27. Do you practice meditation, visualization, guided imagery or visualization prior to competing and when you practice?

Ideally, I like to see athletes with scores of 8.5 on most of the above. Being eighty five per cent ready, is usually enough to produce fine performances.

If you discover weaknesses that are causing you to lose matches and tournaments, you need to develop strategies and techniques to overcome these deficiencies.

It is hard to make these kinds of changes on your own. A sport psychologist, coach or mentor can often be quite helpful in building confidence, reducing anxiety, improving focus and in showing you how to enter the zone more often.

If your scores are very low, you can probably benefit from some counseling, mental toughness training or training in self-hypnosis.

Under the TCJA, spousal support under a divorce decree or settlement agreement finalized after December 31, 2018 is no longer deductible, notes Janet Reed, Esq.

The change poses a significant consideration for practitioners … the support being awarded or agreed upon in 2019 and forward will represent a higher financial burden for the payor spouse”

— Janet Reed, The Law Office of Attorney Janet Pittman Reed

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, January 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In her newest published article, lawyer Janet Reed explains recent tax changes that may be implicated in family law proceedings. The complete article will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

As part of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (TCJA), tax treatment of spousal support has gone under a major overhaul. As practitioners of family law are well aware, currently, spousal support is an above the line deduction for the payor spouse and taxable income for the payee spouse. This means that regardless of whether the payor spouse takes the standard deduction or the itemized deduction, said payor spouse can deduct spousal support from his or her taxable income and reduce their tax burden. Correspondingly, the payee spouse has to report such spousal support as their income and be responsible for the income taxes on it. Because payor spouse tends to have higher income than the payee spouse, it often results in a net tax benefit by shifting pre-tax dollars from the payor spouse to the payee spouse.

Under the TCJA, spousal support payable under a divorce decree or settlement agreement finalized after December 31, 2018 is no longer deductible by the payor spouse nor reportable as income by the payee spouse. This is also true for any modifications to existing settlement agreements, but only if the agreement explicitly provides that spousal support will no longer be deductible by the payor spouse.

The change poses a significant consideration for practitioners. Attorneys representing payor spouse must recognize that the support being awarded or agreed upon in 2019 and forward will represent a substantially higher financial burden for the payor spouse. At the same time, payee spouse will now receive such support without worry for income tax burden. Payor spouse’s attorney will need to focus on lowering the support amount in litigations and negotiations to accurately reflect the fact that spousal support award can be lower and still provide same financial support to the payee spouse. Attorneys for payee spouse will need to focus on maximizing the financial benefit to the payee spouse and also ensure that support award or agreement does not overcompensate for the change in tax law, resulting in an unduly reduced spousal support.

Navigating the constantly shifting tax laws and their implications on family law cases requires the assistance of an experienced family law attorney. Individuals are encouraged to discuss the potential ramifications of the TCJA on their cases with a qualified family law attorney, adds Ms. Reed.
