Alimony Reform: Round one. The New
Jersey Alimony Reform Law of 2014
Passed by the legislature on June 30, 2014
Signed into law by Governor Christie on September 10, 2014.
This law, while a step in the right direction, does not go far enough
in advancing the goal of reducing the cost and uncertainty in alimony cases.
As explained in a Press of Atlantic City Op
Ed, I was disappointed that this bill moved forward rather than holding out
for the needed reforms including guidelines (subject, of course, to a judge's
disretion in either direction when there is a basis to deviate) as to the
amount and duration.
Irreconcilable Differences Bill
Passed by the legislature on December 11, 2006.
Signed into law by Governor Corzine on January 22.
Thanks to all who worked so hard to get this much-needed change enacted.
