About Me:
I am a family law attorney (collaborative divorce) and have been a mediator for more than 20 years. My focus is to help people achieve peaceful divorce through mediation and collaborative divorce. I practice in metro-Atlanta with my husband, Marty Varon, a certified valuation expert/attorney/cpa who is a registered financial neutral in collaborative law and serves as a financial neutral in divorce mediation. We believe in the team approach to mediation, led by the mediator, and when appropriate, aided by the financial neutral. Our company is Alternative Resolution Methods, Inc.

Often one of the parties requests that the ultimate disposition of these non-liquid assets be finalized some time in the future when the closely held business or real estate interest is sold. He or she further posits that the real value of these assets will only be… Continue

This is typically accomplished by the use of IRS Form 8332 (which was revised in January 2009.) Recent amendments to IRS regulations provide that a… Continue
