- Q. Can I make a legally binding agreement with my husband?
- A: Thank you for your question. There is o such thing as legal separation in NJ. That being said you have options. You could file a non-dissolution action with the court and then execute a Consent Order with all the terms you and your husband agree on. You could also do a Divorce from Bed & Board, which is where you agree to terms such as spousal support, child support and a parenting time schedule and divide your assets but you do not get an absolute divorce. It would definitely be in your best interests to have counsel for either of these actions. There are pros and cons to both of these actions. Both are legally binding and enforceable. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney to find out which option is best for your situation. Many firms, including mine, offer free consults to help you decide how to proceed.
- Q. My ex husband had stopped paying child support and giving the rent money for 3 weeks now due to covid-19. What can i do?
- A: Thank you for your questions. I'm sure this is a very frustrating and scary time for you. There may be several options available to you. You could file a motion to enforce and you would receive a portion of any unemployment your husband receives. While he owns his own business and would normally not be eligible for unemployment, there have been special provisions made during the COVID 19 crisis. Another option is to apply for public assistance and let the board of social services proactively seek reimbursement fro your husband. An attorney could also attempt to intervene on your behalf and get some relief from your husband without the immediate need for court intervention;. Many firsm, including mine, offer free consultations,. You should speak with an experienced family law attorney to get more information on how you might proceed.
- Q. i'm 16 turning 17 and i want to move out of my house with my friend and his mother, if i have a job would it be fine?
- A: If your parents agree to you moving out then they would have to assign temporary custody to your friend's mom so that she could consent if you needed emergency medical treatment, for example. If your parents are not in agreement, then yes they can stop you. You are a minor child. Another option is to get emancipated. You have the the right to seek emancipation if you are 16 years old, live away from the family home, and are capable of supporting yourself. The court will require evidence that you are independent from your parents and have enough income to support yourself, including money for rent, utilities and food. The Court would decide if you can move out and are capable of supporting yourself. In order to file for emancipation you should talk to an experienced family law attorney. Many firms offer free consultations in this area.
