College Financing and NJ Divorce: A case of premature emancipation?

In previous posts we have discussed that child support obligations may extend beyond a child’s 18th birthday, including college education financing, or even a Master’s or professional degree (law, medicine, dentistry, architecture, etc.). We have also written about how, under certain circumstances, it is possible that a child support order could be modified, whether upward

Understanding Your Employment Agreement (CBA, Individual Contract, or Handbook): “What do I need to know?”

An Employment Agreement, whether formal or informal, states the terms and conditions of the relationship between employer and employee. These terms may include employee compensation, benefits, employer expectations, governing rules, discipline, and terms of discharge (or quitting). Here is what you need to know when considering a job, reconsidering the Employment Agreement mid-stream, or contemplating

Co-Parenting: Simplifying the complex and making it work for everyone. A conversation with Jennifer Gardella.

When a divorce involves children, parents have many questions about child custody and parenting time. As a New Jersey divorce lawyer, I work tirelessly to ensure that our clients find as much peace in their post-divorce lives as possible. This includes negotiating an outstanding financial agreement for them, as well as promoting excellent co-parenting relationships

Protect My Ass(ets) in a New Jersey Divorce? Here’s How.

According to a recent report of U.S. Census data, New Jersey has the lowest remarriage rate in the nation. These statistics indicate that New Jersey residents either stay married or get divorced and never say “I do” again. This phenomenon is consistent with other marriage data about New Jersey, which has one the lowest divorce

LGBT workers: Fed contractors must not discriminate against you!!

Americans are protected from workplace discrimination. Previously, federal contractors and subcontractors were not allowed to discriminate against employees on the basis of religion, color, race, sex, disability, national origin or status as a protected veteran. Recently, another class was added to that list: workers who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. The Executive Order President

Attention military members and spouses: Get your fair share of the military pension in divorce.

While every New Jersey divorce is unique, there are certain commonalities that will always need to be addressed, as relevant: child custody, child support, spousal support, and equitable division of assets and debts. These issues can be complex and stressful for all. When at least one spouse is in the military, however, the parties face additional hurdles.

Fired! A reasonable leave of absence request, even after a leave of absence is over, should not lead to job termination.

Life does not always go as planned. Workers sometimes realize, unexpectedly, that they are unable to do their jobs as a result of an injury or illness. While there are situations where such a disability will be permanent, other times workers may plan to return after taking a leave of absence to get a handle

According to Shakespeare: “The fault . . . is not in our stars but in ourselves.” According to New Jersey divorce law: “Maybe it was YOUR fault all along!!”

Like most states in the nation, New Jersey adopted a “no-fault” divorce model in the 1970’s, which permits spouses to unilaterally dissolve marriages, without digging up the root causes or detailing the marital dysfunction. Surely, the fault based divorce is not dead, right? Is there not SOME reason to state a fault-based claim against a

With two strikes against her, SCOTUS returns this pregnant worker’s discrimination case to Federal District Court.

For many women, the prospect of expanding a family by having a baby is an exciting thing. For some working women, however, the birth of a child may pose problems in the workplace. These women may face unfair and very real job discrimination as a result of their pregnancies. Last summer, we wrote a post

Age discrimination in refusal to hire? Here are three (3) ways to prove it.

Workplace discrimination is not limited to post-hiring, when you have a job. It could play a role in an employer’s failure to hire you in the first place. This includes discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, age, gender, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. So how do you prove your case? In this post we
