Snyder Sarno D'Aniello Maceri da Costa LLC Special Areas of Focus

Prenuptial, Postnuptial and Reconciliation Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is an agreement between spouses made in contemplation of the marriage that serves to protect individual assets and other rights during the marriage and in the event of a divorce. Unlike a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement is an agreement between spouses made during the marriage to protect individual assets and other rights in the event of a divorce. Unlike a prenuptial agreement, and similar to a postnuptial agreement, a reconciliation agreement is an agreement between spouses made during the marriage to protect individual assets and other rights in the event of a divorce.

Alimony

Alimony is intended to provide a dependent spouse with a level of support and standard of living generally commensurate with the quality of economic life that existed during the marriage. Crews v. Crews, 164 N.J. 11 (2000). The objective of alimony is the continuation of a standard of living enjoyed by the parties prior to the separation and the obligation of the supporting spouse should be set at a level that would maintain that standard. Innes v. Innes, 117 N.J. 496 (1990); Lepis v. Lepis, 83 N.J. 139 (1980). Both parties have the right to live that lifestyle, finances permitting.

Child Support

Child support is the legal obligation of a parent to provide financial support for his or her child. Although the payment of child support affects parent-to-parent relationships, it is a fundamental principle of family law that the right to child support belongs to the child and not to the custodial parent. Pascale v. Pascale, 140 N.J. 583 (1995).

Property Division

Upon the entry of a Judgment of Divorce, the court is to equitably distribute marital assets between spouses, regardless of titled ownership. N.J.S.A. 2A:34-23(h). The theory of equitable distribution is that marriage is a partnership whose assets should be fairly and equitable distributed when the partnership breaks up. Pascale v. Pascale, 140 N.J. 583 (1995).

Domestic Partnerships and Civil Unions

A domestic partnership is a relationship wherein two individuals of the same sex, or two individuals of the opposite sex who are each 62 years of age or older, who meet the criteria set forth in N.J.S.A. 26:8A-4, are afforded certain rights and benefits, such as statutory protection against various forms of discrimination against domestic partners, certain visitation and decision-making rights in a healthcare setting, and certain tax-related benefits. However, effective February 19, 2007, two individuals of the same sex can no longer establish a domestic partnership. N.J.SA. 26:8A-4.1. The court may terminate a domestic partnership and may distribute jointly held property. However, the court is not required to effectuate an equitable distribution in the same manner as a divorce. N.J.S.A. 26:8A-10.
