Adopting abroad? Don’t forget to re-adopt at home.

Adoption can be a lengthy, stressful and expensive process. It’s a joyful occasion when, after months of hoping and worrying, you can finally hold your new baby in your arms. However, if you adopted in another country, there is an important final step you should consider taking once you’ve brought your child back to the United States. The process is known as “international re-adoption”, which is a validation of your international adoption by the U.S. government.

Parent's College Contribution

As experienced New Jersey custody and support attorneys, we frequently have clients come to our firm on the difficult issue of college contributions. In New Jersey, unlike many states, not only can the Court compel divorced or separated parents to continue contributing to their children's support after the children are 18 years old, the Court can also compel the parents to contribute to the (often substantial) cost of college, should a child have the capability to attend. Not infrequently, a parent will inform us that he or she has little to no relationship with their child, and ask if they will still have to contribute to college. 

What's Mine Is Yours: When Pre-Marital Real Estate Becomes Marital Property

While this may work well at the time, if the parties do marry and subsequently divorce, the debate over when "my property" became "our property" can be tricky, particularly when it comes to the marital home. If a husband or wife bought a property prior to the marriage, that individual may think he or she is indisputably entitled to 100% of that property. However, in New Jersey, that is not necessarily the case, even if the party bought the house before the marriage or purchased it solely with his or her own money.

Wife of Founder of Cancer Treatment Centers of America Seeks $400k a Month in Alimony. Here is Why a Court Might Grant It.

alimony.jpgThe multi-millionaire founder of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Richard Stephenson, and his wife, Alicia Stephenson, have been locked in a bitter divorce battle for the better part of the last decade, and the case has been on trial in Illinois since October 2016. One of the more contentious issues in the case is Mrs. Stephenson's request for $400,000.00 per month in alimony. While this amount may seem shocking to some, divorce courts in most states, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey, have the discretion to order such an amount, depending on the facts and circumstances of the case.
