There is a clear trend in family law issues for people to try to resolve their issues out of court, and rightfully so. Litigation in court is time consuming, costly and emotional. Resolutions out of court have a higher success rate of avoiding post-divorce litigation. Those out-of-court resolutions can occur either with attorneys working directly with the clients or with the clients sitting down with a third party for mediation, which is non-binding. In some instances, binding discussions called arbitration will occur with a third party who makes decisions instead of a judge doing so. In any event, an experienced family lawyer must be able to explain to his or her clients when out-of-court resolutions are appropriate.

Medical malpractice lawsuits do not increase the cost of health care. Preventing medical errors will dramatically lower health care costs, reduce doctors’ insurance premiums and protect the health and well-being of patients. Insurance companies are raising rates because of poor returns on their investments, not because of litigation or jury awards.

There seems to be a growing trend in the area of custody. For years, it used to be the mother of the child(ren) would more often be the primary residential parent. This was especially true with young children. Today, there is a growing trend for parents to share residential custody 50/50 and for more fathers to be named the primary residential parent. Both parties have equal rights to custody and parenting time of their children regardless of their gender.

If you are looking for an alternative to private practice, selling your practice to a private equity fund can provide a very lucrative exit strategy. A benefit of private equity funds is that they are typically well-funded, well-managed, and looking for growth opportunities. However, not every practice is going to attract private equity, and private equity is not necessarily the right choice for every physician.
Physicians looking for alternatives to private practice might consider joining a larger private practice group or a hospital or health care system. There are pros and cons to each.

When children go to college, you might think that child support should decrease, but recent case law suggests there is no presumption to decrease child support upon a child’s matriculation to college. Although some expenses decrease with a child living at college, other expenses (e.g. travel) increase. It is important to consider the child’s actual expenses before modifying child support.

When scheduling the first consultation with a lawyer about a divorce or family law matter, make sure they check for conflicts of interest before meeting with you. Why? It would be uncomfortable to share your private information with an attorney, only to find out the attorney has already met with your spouse or another person involved in the case.

This process preserves the family’s privacy, promotes cooperation and communication, and can be less expensive than litigating in court.

Are domestic ‘’contretemps’’ domestic violence? A frequent issue in divorce cases is whether ordinary family arguments constitute harassment under the New Jersey Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, which is required for the entry of restraining orders. These types of disputes are not covered under domestic violence law as there needs to be a determination that an offense has been committed and further that a domestic violence order is necessary to protect a person or their property.
