This is a great time of the year to take stock of all that we have to be grateful for. Even readers of this blog, who are, presumably, engaged in some type of matrimonial action, whether it be a divorce or a child custody case should be able to find something to be thankful for,...

I recently came across pretty naive article in which Ashia Sims, a relationship examiner, opined that marriage should be forever and divorce should not be an option. While the idea that that marriage is forever is highly appealing and very romantic, it is premised on an overly simplistic or idealized view that two people are...

As the economy continues to falter, there are reports of a couple of distinct trends in family law cases: many couples are putting off their divorces and, if the couples are going forward with their divorces, they doing so without legal representation. NBC News is reporting that “more distressed couples are putting off divorce because...

Today was Veteran’s Day. From my window on Fifth Avenue, it seemed like the biggest loudest parade in years. In view of this holiday designed to give recognition to those who served this country, it seems appropriate to note a new law which was enacted with little or no fanfare. While protecting the countries’ interests,...

This is consistent with New York’s evolving policy of recognizing same sex marriages entered into outside of the State of New York. While New York will recognize a same sex marriage lawfully performed in a jurisdiction other than...

  I read an interesting article in Sunday’s Times about how the credit crunch has resulted in more people borrowing money from their friends and families in order to purchase a home.   There is really nothing new about this phenomenon.   Parents have long gifted or loaned their children money for a home down-payment.    There...

The other evening I had the pleasure of being on a panel to discuss the nuts and bolts of legal blogging at a continuing legal education seminar at the New York City Bar Association with three of the best bloggers out there: Kevin O’Keefe, Scott Greenfield, and Eric Turkowitz. As Kevin noted in his blog, Real...

In writing this blog, I always find it interesting to observe which articles are most viewed. Over time, I have observed that the articles I’ve written about broken engagements and the return of engagement rings are quite heavily trafficked.   So then, it came as no surprise to me that the New York Times contained a fairly comprehensive...
