    Your handwritten agreement is probably good. Generally speaking, the only thing that "overrides" a court order is another court order. So, if you ever wanted to be certain that you weren't violating a court order, you should obtain an updated court order -- which you can do either by motion, or often by signing a "consent order" and asking the judge informally to sign it. However, the courts favor the idea of parents working together to raise their children, and to address day-to-day...

  2. Are a company's clients proprietary?

    You are exactly right. As long as you did not sign a contract for a restrictive covenant (such as an agreement not to compete with your former employer), and as long as you did not agree to protect your employer's trade secrets, customer lists, etc., any attempt to stop you from doing business with your former client would constitute an illegal restraint of trade in violation of both federal and New Jersey state law. It is not a simple issue, however. If your former employer believes you...

    Assuming you are referring to U.S. military service, and assuming that you meet all of the conditions, your employer must reinstate you when you return from the service. This law is contained in the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA). Your employer must re-employ you in the same job you had, provided that you report back to work within five years (and you're away because of military service). The employer can only avoid this requirement if (1) Their...

    A broken fibula, with the complications you've described, could be worth a significant amount of money if we can prove Walmart's negligence. There are many reasons why black ice forms in certain areas of a retail parking lot. For example, the ground surface may be improperly leveled or graded, allowing water to gather in certain areas.There may be inadequate drainage of runoff water. Walmart may also be negligent in supervising its entranceways and lots, failing to lay down salt and other...

  7. How do I sign over Parental Rights in New Jersey?

    Answered almost 5 years ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    You have many options, but I recommend that you file a petition for Kinship Legal Guardianship. This is a special legal right permitted under New Jersey law. It allows you to place your children with your family members. Of course, the children's father will have a say in this. If he objects, you may have to fight it out in a hearing in the Superior Court of Bergen County. I'd be happy to help you with this. I am a family lawyer with offices throughout Bergen County.

    The criminal justice field is a big field -- lawyers, police officers, federal agents, private investigators, parole and probation officers, sheriff's deputies, prison officials, crime lab personnel, and so forth. If you are interested in a particular field or a particular employer, you should contact them and inquire as to whether a criminal record will automatically disqualify you. In some cases, any theft crime will be viewed as an indication of dishonesty, thus making you ineligible for...

    1 lawyer answer

    Generally, medical reimbursements and other kinds of payments are NOT considered child support. Child support is a separate number, and the non-custodial parent is required to pay the court-ordered amount of support regardless of any other payments he has to make, such as medical bills, summer camp costs, etc. It is possible that the costs of certain medical obligations and camp and educational costs have been included in the calculations for your child support under a category known as "...

    You need to file a motion to modify custody as your first step. If Florida has jurisdiction, you can file this in Tavares, in the Lake County Circuit Court. If the mother lives in another state, that state may have jurisdiction. Contact me, and I'll be happy to discuss this with you. I hope this is helpful.
