Are divorce rates back on the rise in New Jersey?

Although the overall divorce rates in the U.S. and here in New Jersey have been declining for some time, a recent news report suggests that there is currently an uptick in divorce filings.

NJ lawmakers send social media privacy bill to governor

Lesbian couple fights morality clause in divorce decree

Earlier this month in this Princeton Employment Law Blog, we noted that Gov.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie vetoes social media privacy bill

In late March we discussed a New Jersey employment law bill that had been sent to Gov. Chris Christie’s desk. The bill would have forbidden employers from inquiring about their employees’ or job candidates’ social media use. Christie has since decided to conditionally veto the bill, taking particular issue with the fact that the law would

After divorce or broken engagement who keeps the ring?

In this New Jersey Family Law Blog, we often discuss how property division is handled in divorce. However, we have not really written about what divorce or a broken engagement means for the item that started it all: the engagement ring. This tricky issue comes to mind after it was reported late last month that

Alimony reform shot down in Florida

New Jersey is one of a number of states where proponents of alimony law reform are holding aggressive campaigns.
