Basic tax tips for divorcing couples

Taxes don't go away because of divorce, unfortunately. And while neither divorce nor taxes are exactly fun to talk about, there are some important considerations that you should be aware of if you are in the middle of divorce proceedings. 

"Wearing the white hat": Four tips on being "the good parent" in a child custody case

With the narrow scope of information that a Judge gets to observe in a child custody case, clients often ask us what they need to do in order to get across to a Judge that they are "the good parent." Our short answer is that our clients need to be able to "wear the white hat" and come into Court with a complete clean slate if they are trying to get a custody Order changed or modified in their favor. family-law1.jpg 

Digital spying becoming common in divorce

Due to the affordability and ubiquity of GPS tracking devices and spyware, checking in on a spouse's whereabouts and activities is alarmingly frequent in divorce. This can involve things like checking email and monitoring social media posts, of course, but there is much more to it than that.

Cohabitation and Terminating Alimony in New Jersey

When an alimony obligation exists between ex-spouses in New Jersey, both the paying and receiving ex-spouses can wonder how a dating relationship of the receiving ex-spouse with a significant other can impact the paying ex-spouse's obligation to pay alimony. Typically, the dating relationship of the receiving ex-Tennessee-Alimony-Law2.jpgspouse is only going to alter the obligation of the paying ex-spouse if a situation called "cohabitation" exists. Broadly, cohabitation is defined as "a mutually supportive, intimate personal relationship in which a couple has undertaken duties and privileges that are commonly associated with marriage."

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

martial home.jpgWith the growing trends towards lengthy engagements and living together before marriage, more and more couples are assuming "marriage-like" relationships before officially tying the knot. 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.
