Rudy opened the meeting at 7:16am. Both Fred Ayers and Joe Nugent announced their “formal” retirement from the group. We subsequently found that Jay Olsen (Electrician) is also leaving the group.
Our speaker for the day was Ivette Alvarez of Einhorn Harris.
Ivette talked about alimony in New Jersey. Recent changes to the statute has provided more guidance to attorneys. The phrase “permanent” has been changed to “open duration”. Any marriage over 20 years is regarded still as permanent – marriage lengths shorter than 20 years carry alimony for the equivalent to the length of the marriage.
“Permanent” means permanent until re-marriage so many people try to get around this by not re-marrying. Palimony is recognized in NJ but is based on a “promise to support”.
Ivette’s talk ended with questions from the audience.
