Social media is a hot topic when it comes to the law. For one, there’s the importance of keeping a low profile (http://www.stoialaw.com/stoialawblog/social-media-impacts-divorce-proceedings) when involved in a divorce (http://www.stoialaw.com/divorce) or custody dispute (http://www.stoialaw.com/child-custody-and-visitation). However, the courts may look at Facebook and other social media platforms from a new vantag ..

There are many reasons that people may decide to relocate. Families who live together may make the decision as a combined body. However, what happens when there is a divorce? Or, if the parents were never married? What does the law say when an NJ parent wants to relocate children (http://www.stoialaw.com/relocation)? In some cases, relocation may actually be addressed in a matrimonial settlement order. Frankly ..

Like many parents, you may have your own ideas about child support obligations (http://www.stoialaw.com/child-support). Ultimately, it will be up to the court to approve the amount and duration. For some, it might seem that child support should end at the conclusion of secondary education. For others, it could appear reasonable that child support continues until college graduation. Or, upon determination of a child&rsq ..

You may have heard that the concept of permanent alimony is somewhat passé in New Jersey. In fact, we previously wrote about the issue here (http://www.stoialaw.com/stoialawblog/how-is-the-length-of-an-alimony-award-determined). Nonetheless, some older court orders still make allowances for lifetime alimony. That’s not to say they are written in stone and can’t be contested at a later date. First ..

It doesn’t matter if you were wed to your ex’ mother or father. Whether your child was conceived during a marriage or outside of one, custody and parenting time (http://www.stoialaw.com/child-custody-and-visitation) are important issues. How they are handled can make a big difference. Arguably, there’s a chance that you already have a custody and parenting time agreement in place. It’s one of ..

You and your spouse might fight like cats and dogs. And your fur babies may be one of the elements of your marital disputes. After all, your pets are part of your family. Are you worried who will get custody of your pets when you divorce (http://www.stoialaw.com/divorce)? There’s no question that animals can hold a special place in every divorcing person’s heart. Who knows? Maybe some couples even stay ..

It doesn’t matter if Mom and Dad were ever married. There are tons of reasons that both parents might not live in New Jersey. It could be that one relocated out of state in connection with a job assignment. Maybe the couple met in one state on vacation and returned to their home. Of course, there’s always the possibility that the cost of living was less expensive somewhere else. How does this all work when ..

For some, the whole concept of equitable distribution sounds unfair. This complaint generally comes from individuals who have high paying jobs. Their spouse enjoys the “luxury’ of staying home and with a nanny and housekeeper to attend to the house and children. What’s equitable about distributing income that only one party makes? Equitable distribution is based on the premise that marriage is a pa ..

Unfortunately, it’s the subject of at least one reality television show. Questions about paternity can create problems. Often, the issues surface when the mother files court documents seeking child support (http://www.stoialaw.com/child-support). Can fathers be required to make support payments for children that aren’t theirs? First, you should realize that New Jersey law (http://law.justia.com/codes/new ..

Back in the 1950s, Connie Francis sang the song “You Always Hurt the One You Love.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mj9JV1Xwos) It was a remake previously done by other artists. Although the lyrics are not necessarily about domestic violence, the one you love or loved could hurt you. And, you need to know what to do if that’s the case. We’ve written before about domestic violence and restr ..
