New law helps domestic violence victims

After an incidence of domestic violence or sexual assault, victims often need time to heal physically and mentally. In New Jersey, new legislation requires that employers give those who have suffered from domestic or sexual violence, or their close family members, 20 days of unpaid leave. This new law is called NJ SAFE Act, which stands for New Jersey Security and Financial Empowerment Act. It will go into effect later this year.

New Jersey considering change in alimony laws

New Jersey is joining several other states in their mission to revise current alimony laws. Massachusetts has already made significant reforms to its alimony laws, and Florida attempted to reform its alimony bill, but it was recently vetoed by the state's governor. Legislation is being pushed in New York, and New Jersey is also publicly contemplating changes. Some of these states are considering using special formulas to determine how much alimony should be allocated and for how long.

New Jersey couples may find air miles slow down divorce

For many New Jersey couples, divorce is an emotional process that may be resolved quickly or drag on for ages with seemingly no end in sight. Often, the long, dragged-out divorces focus on issues that many people would consider petty. Couples who are unable to agree on the simplest terms of property division are often in for a long and contentious legal battle. Accordingly, most couples come to terms with the compromise necessary to affect a reasonable financial settlement in a divorce case.
