It’s a keeper.
“We are fluent in family law and the way forward.”
Law professor and domestic abuse victims’ advocate Natalie Nanasi recently penned an article for a national publication noting material variance in the definition of “domestic violence” between successive presidential administrations.
We spotlighted what is often a key family law issue in our immediately preceding blog post. We noted in our January 14 entry the centrality of grandparent rights in many cases involving the best interests of children.
The thoughts of most people hearing about a domestic abuse incident almost certainly focus first upon the alleged victim/accuser. Violence is always a frightful matter, especially when it is family-based, and the details surrounding abuse inflicted upon a seemingly vulnerable domestic partner or other family member can easily overwhelm everything else.
We preface a page devoted to marital contracts on our family law website at The Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh in Somerville with the stated viewpoint of many people concerning that subject matter. Those individuals, we note, “say prenuptial agreements are contrary to the basis of marriage.”
That above-posed headline query is an interesting question, isn’t it? Legions of divorced parents in New Jersey and elsewhere badly want to help their off-to-school children, but not all of them are financially equipped to do so in an unlimited way.
We’ll just immediately respond to that headline-posed query above before moving on to an attendant narrative in today’s blog post.
It has indeed been a sustained slog for prenuptial agreements en route to their widespread acceptance in New Jersey and nationally.
If you're a New Jersey member of America's vast baby boomer group, there's statistically a good chance that you're not too enamored of go-it-alone financial strategies for marrying couples. That is, many relatively older Americans believe that a true marital commitment requires a single pot of money poured into a joint account absent any "mine" and "yours" markings.
