Q. Hi,i do live here in new jersey.my question is my wife wants to move out our home.is it ok to bring my son.
A: Schedule a consultation with a certified matrimonial ( divorce) trial lawyer before you agree to anything. This is too important an issue to simply agree upon without understanding the legal significance of your actions. Too often, we family law specialists hear stories about someone getting bad advice from a general practitioner and then trying to figure out how to undo the damage caused by the decision made. If you would like to schedule a consultation with one of the partners in Diamond & Diamond to discuss your current setting, call Angela at 973-379-9292 to arrange it. And yes, Mr Diamond is a certified matrimonial trial lawyer by the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Q. My boyfriend is divorced for 11 years in January he has been paying alimony for 10 years he wants to retire
A: Its impossible for any family law attorney to give you competent advice based on the limited information supplied. My suggestion is that you and he meet with a family law attorney ( not a general practitioner who handles family law matters) to discuss it and to review the change in circumstance details. For purposes of a meeting, be prepared to bring a copy of the divorce agreement and everything he has as to his total compensation setting at the time of the divorce ( including tax returns, W-2's, and any writings between counsel as to his income setting), every document he has as to his former wifes income setting from the divorce, and his income setting currently and why that setting changed and then a lawyer can advise on how to go forward with an application for modification.
Q. Lawyer drafted a trust, will and POA document. Less than two years later POA/Trustee is being taken to court by benefici
A: While this matter seems like a "family law" matter, it is actually an estate law matter and you need to talk with an estate law specialist who handles estate litigation. This is not the type of matter that you go to a general practitioner who advertises that he also handles estate claims. Too often, people go to general practitioners, thinking that they will save money or that every lawyer can handle every type of claim with the same level of knowledge. Wrong! If you had a brain tumor, would you go to a general doctor, whose website says that he can handle cancer issues or would you go to a specialist - since you dont want to take chances. Its the same here - you need a consultation with a certified estate law attorney who is experienced with estate litigation.
