Talented child, higher child support obligation?

Posted in Child Support, New Jersey

The rise of social media such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Vine and Tumblr has undoubtedly put a spotlight on talent. Today, more children than ever are getting their “big break” within minutes of  parents posting a video of their children belting out a song, performing a dance routine, creating a breakthrough in science or excelling in sports. With a simple click of the “share” button a video can go viral and instantaneously a new star is born. Of course most of these children have devoted countless hours to perfecting their passions and talents through their enrollment in private lessons, extra-curricular activities, schools with a particular focus on the arts, technology, sports and a variety of other disciplines, etc. Continue Reading

HOW CAN I GET A “QUICKIE” DIVORCE?

Posted in Divorce

This is a question that I am often asked—and for good reason.  The divorce process can be emotionally and economically draining.  Simply put, no one wants to litigate for longer than he/she needs to. Many people that I talk to believe that there is no real answer to this question, i.e. divorce always has to be a long and painful process—like a rite of passage. Continue Reading

However, even when attorneys are involved, cases settle out of court.
