Alimony payments affected by new tax laws in 2019

The end of the year can bring a great deal of change for many families. Some changes are positive, but this can also be a time of year where people decide to divorce.

Adoption: 7 siblings get new home for the holidays

Families come in all varieties and combinations. For many in New Jersey, adoption is the way they choose to complete their lives. Most people may consider adopting just one or two children, but an out-of-state family opened their hearts and home when they recently decided to adopt seven siblings. The kids now have a new home for the Christmas season.

Address Confidentiality Program for victims of domestic violence

No person should ever be afraid of the person they love the most. Unfortunately, that is exactly the case for far too many people. Victims of domestic violence often live in fear of their abusers, even going so far as to relocate, but there is always the risk that an abusive partner could find out the new whereabouts of his or her victim. The National Address Confidentiality program exists to assist families who are victims of domestic violence in New Jersey and other states.

How the holidays may affect child custody for New Jersey families

This time of year can bring a great deal of joy for many people here in New Jersey and across the country. The winter season often represents a time to be with family and friends. Unfortunately, for many people, the holidays can also bring a lot of stress, and for divorced families in particular, this time of year can be a struggle. Divorced parents who share children often have to determine exactly how to navigate their child custody arrangements.

New bill may help victims of domestic violence

New Jersey residents are by now aware that victims of certain crimes may face hardships through no fault of their own. Recent changes to requirements to obtain a drivers' license or a REAL ID, which is a new form of license recognized on a federal level, may leave victims of domestic violence in a pinch. Many victims feel they must seek safety in the form of shelters or by staying with a friend or family member. This can be a potential roadblock when it comes time to obtain a drivers' license or ID that requires a listed address.
