Tax season can reveal this culprit: the financially cheating spouse

Marital assets often come to the fore in a New Jersey divorce. Couples customarily worked long and hard to accumulate them, with each spouse understandably wanting to be treated fairly in the asset distribution process.

New Jersey law controlling divorce-linked property disposition mandates an “equitable” distribution of marital wealth. In a word, that translates to “fair.” What that means will differ among divorces. We note on our family law website at the Somerville Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh that impending former partners “may have widely different ideas about what should be included and how to split it.”

Closely held business considerations in a New Jersey divorce

There’s almost no question that a family business is going to loom large in a New Jersey divorce.

After all, it has been a cornerstone asset during marriage, and perhaps even predated it, being established by one spouse while still single. What will now happen to it?

Too many tickets will get your license suspended

In New Jersey, your driver’s license can be suspended if you accumulate 12 points worth of traffic offenses in one year.

After the hardship of losing driving privileges, you could be hit with reinstatement fees, annual surcharges and steeper auto insurance premiums. It may be worth the time and expense to fight the traffic ticket in municipal court.

New tax law may affect homeownership after divorce

Recently we wrote about what to do with the house in a divorce – keep it, share it or sell it.

What is the enduring constant in family law?

“We are fluent in family law and the way forward.”

When we state that on our website at the Somerville Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh, we do so with keen appreciation for a factor that is paramount in family-centric matters in New Jersey and across the country.

A continued look at New Jersey foreclosure reform ideas

Your home is 60 percent-plus more likely to get sucked into the foreclosure process if you are a New Jersey resident rather than a homeowner residing in another state.

That woeful bit of news comes courtesy of real estate information company RealtyTrac, which has supplied similar bits of data concerning the state’s housing realities in recent years.

New Members of The New Jersey State Bar Association Board of Trustees

On February 8, 2019, attorney Rajeh A. Saadeh was one of the three new members added to the New Jersey State Bar Association Board of Trustees. Rajeh is filling a vacancy in the Young Lawyers Division, along with attorney Christopher J. Keating. The new trustee, Susan L. Nardone, joins as a Section/Committee trustee. 

Getting divorced will cost a little more in New Jersey

The experts at 24/7 Wall Street, LLC, crunched the numbers to gauge the cost of getting a divorce in each of the 50 states.

New Jersey came in at the sixth highest. But we also have one of the highest costs of living, so it’s not surprising that a divorce would be a bit more expensive. So what does it cost to “uncouple” in the Garden State?
