Green & Associates Gets $91,000 in Retroactive Alimony Repayment

May 1, 2017 @ 03:00 PM — by Michael Green

On April 28, 2017, Green & Associates, LLC obtained a judgment against the ex-Wife of its client, terminating alimony payments made by the ex-Husband and obtaining a judgment of over $91,000 in retroactive alimony repayments.  

The Court in Middlesex County, after a plenary hearing, found that because the ex-Wife committed fraud and intentionally hid that she was cohabitating from the ex-Husband, fully aware that it would jeopardize her alimony payments, and because the ex-Wife and the cohabitant were in an intimate relationship and supporting each other monetarily, that alimony was not only terminated but the ex-Wife would have to pay back to the Husband all of the alimony she received during the period of cohabitation.

If you have questions about alimony in your divorce or modification of alimony after your divorce, call us at 732-390-0480 or 201-242-1119 in our East Brunswick divorce or Fort Lee divorce offices.

NJ Divorce and Alimony Modification or Termination

Feb 12, 2017 @ 03:00 PM — by Michael Green

In 2014, the State of New Jersey amended its alimony statute that made more clear when alimony may be modified or terminated.  As a result, alimony modification and termination motions made postjudgment have become more frequent and the New Jersey State Family Courts have in turn created a more defined process as to how they will deal with them.  It is likely that any postjugment motion will be pushed to a plenary hearing, a mini-trial of sorts where the parties present evidence and give testimony.  

If you have questions regarding alimony termination or modification, from the obligor or obligee perspective, please call Green & Associates at 732-390-0480 or 201-242-1119 to speak with our experienced NJ divorce lawyer.  We offer free consultations and appointments at night and on weekends for your convenience in our two offices in East Brunswick and Fort Lee.

Prior to the plenary hearing, the parties will engage in discovery that has been scheduled by the Court. 



Divorce and Anti-Lepis Clauses - Why a Blanket Application May Be an Error by the Court

Mar 25, 2016 @ 10:53 AM — by Michael Green

Divorce and Anti-Lepis Clauses in Property Settlement Agreements - When a Blanket Application May Be an Error by a Court.  

Anti-Lepis Clauses in Divorce Agreements are essentially attempts to deal with the Lepis case that generally allowed for modification of terms of support in agreements in the future if there was a substantial change in circumstances.  An anti-Lepis clause is a clause that prohibits modification of the terms of alimony in the future regardless of whether or not there was a substantial change in circumstance.

For example, the following arguments could apply, if an agreement is silent as to a term regarding alimony, such as cohabitation, and the Court applies an anti-Lepis clause in the agreement as to cohabitation, there may be an issue as to whether or not the the anti-Lepis clause should have been applied.

New Alimony Statute in New Jersey Establishes Durational Limits and Enumerates Factors for Modification and Termination of Alimony, Establishes "Open Durational" Alimony, Eliminates Permanent Alimony
