  • Jun 18, 2019GETTING MARRIED? TALK TO A LAWYER

    Norris McLaughlin Attorneys Have Vast Experience in All Facets of Matrimonial Law

    Preparing to get married is an exciting time in one’s life. It can also be a challenging time. Decisions about wedding venues, entertainment, catering, and guests can test everyone’s stress levels. Adding discussions about budgeting, children, household division of labor, and long-term financial planning may pose additional challenges, but the discussions are worthwhile. Marriage is, after all, a legal contract, and some knowledge and discussion about what the law provides can be extremely useful in helping couples plan their future.

    A lawyer can advise you with respect to the legal rights and obligations that attach to spouses at the time of marriage. He or she can also talk to you about options for contracts, such as pre-marital agreements, that allow couples to re-define various aspects of the marriage contract in a way that can protect certain assets of a party, or even just define the financial landscape for a couple who does not feel that existing estate or divorce laws suit their individual needs. Attorneys at Norris McLaughlin, P.A. have experience in all aspects of matrimonial and family law, and can help clients consider options at the time of marriage and beyond. With the firm’s wide breadth of experience in virtually all areas of law, the matrimonial and family law attorneys are able to work collaboratively with business, tax, and estate planning attorneys to develop strategies and solutions for every situation.

    A common misimpression is that if an asset is titled in a person’s individual name, that person’s spouse has no legal right to that property. In fact, with very few exceptions (including gifts and inheritances), the majority of assets acquired by people during their marriages are considered “marital property”, which means a court has the authority to divide those assets in a divorce. The increase in value of an asset brought by one party to a marriage is also considered a marital asset. “People should know that if they bring an existing asset to the marriage – a piece of real estate or an interest in a business or partnership – and the asset increases in value, that increase is subject to distribution in the event of a divorce,” says Lauren Sorrentino, Chair of the Norris McLaughlin Pennsylvania Matrimonial and Family Law Practice. Sorrentino also points out that defining “marital property” is one of the things she most frequently helps clients to adjust through the use of a pre-marital agreement. “A pre-marital agreement allows people the flexibility to create their own definitions of what will and will not constitute ‘marital property’. ”

    Having realistic economic expectations can also prevent unpleasant surprises if the marriage does not work. For example, many people expect that infidelity will have a dramatic negative financial consequence to the spouse who committed it. Sorrentino explains that even if a party can prove “fault,” that fact will not be considered by a court as part of property distribution. Infidelity is one of many things a court can consider with respect to alimony, but the reality is that the law is designed to prioritize the effectuation of economic justice between divorcing couples. Whether someone was a bad actor frequently has much less impact than a party would like. “In the unfortunate event that a marriage does not work out, I find that people are much better served in the long run if they can focus on moving on with their lives, as opposed to who is the most ‘wrong’ in the relationship,” says Sorrentino.

    The better educated couples are, the less pain they may experience if the marriage does not ultimately continue as planned.

    The law firm of Norris McLaughlin, P.A., is pleased to announce the revival of its New Jersey Matrimonial and Family Law Department, by welcoming Karolina A. Dehnhard and David R.

    Dehnhard and Tawil have devoted their entire practice to family and matrimonial law matters, including divorce actions, prenuptial agreements, child custody, parenting time, alimony, child support, and domestic violence issues. They handle same-gender and international custody matters, post-judgment motions, as well as complex business valuation and high net-worth divorces.  The team, who will now have more resources to better serve their clients’ needs, will be based out of the firm’s Bridgewater office, and will also be debuting a new office in Short Hills, to continue serving their clients in Essex County and the surrounding geographic areas. substantial

    “We are excited to have Karolina and David join the firm as Members, and revamp our New Jersey Matrimonial and Family Law practice. Their extensive knowledge and breadth of experience will be a tremendous asset to the firm, allowing us to offer a full range of services with the personal level of care that our clients have come to know, expect, and appreciate,” said John N. Vanarthos, Chairman of the firm.  “For a firm that has always considered personal services to be paramount, we cannot wait for them to be able to provide their experience and legal counsel to our existing clients, and for others, and to tie Bridgewater, our New Jersey flagship office, to Short Hills,” continued Vanarthos, noting that Richard Norris, one of the longest tenured members of the firm, is pleased to see the revitalization of the practice group.

    Dehnhard, named Chair of the New Jersey Matrimonial and Family Law department, assists with complex financial issues, including valuation of businesses both domestically and abroad; international custody rights; the impact of immigration status on divorcing spouses and their children; addressing and enforcing foreign divorce decrees; and the complexities associated with alimony rights and post-judgment cohabitation.

While in law school, she interned for the Honorable Michael Ambrecht, J.S.C., in the Supreme Court, Criminal Part, Manhattan, and the Honorable Raymond T. Lyons, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the District of New Jersey.

    Tawil, an experienced trial attorney with over seventeen years of focus in Matrimonial and Family Law and domestic violence matters, has previously been a partner at two other law firms in his career; first in a boutique firm in Short Hills and Morristown which limited its practice only to those matters, and then at Budd Larner.  He has an extensive background in handling complex divorce proceedings, including business valuations, custody disputes, high income alimony, child support proceedings, and equitable distribution of assets; including distribution of multi-faceted assets, business interests and deferred compensation.  He has tried numerous family law matters, including domestic violence proceedings, as well as Appellate proceedings, post-judgment cohabitation, alimony modification applications, and also handles cases in all aspects of mediation and arbitration.  Admitted to practice both in New Jersey, as well as New York, Tawil has handled matters in both states.

    Tawil is the co-author of both the 14th and 15th editions of the Domestic Violence chapter of the New Jersey Family Law Practice Series, the foremost Family Law treatise in use by family law practitioners in New Jersey.   He, along with Dehnhard, speak regularly on all aspects of matrimonial and family law, including domestic violence and custody issues, financial security, equitable distribution and support.  He is the co-host of “The Law Matters” on WMTR Radio, soon to be entering its sixth season.

    Prior to entering private practice, Tawil served as a law clerk for the Honorable Thomas P. Zampino, Judge of the Superior Court, Essex County, New Jersey, one of the longest-tenured matrimonial judges in the State of New Jersey.  A graduate of Rutgers University with dual majors in History and Political Science, Tawil attended law school at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York. While in law school, he interned for the Honorable Nicholas H. Positan, for the District of New Jersey.

    Selected as a Rising Star by the New Jersey Super Lawyers Magazine annually from 2009 through 2017, Tawil has also volunteered his time for over a decade as a member of the Early Settlement Panels of both Essex and Morris Counties (where he serves as a Blue Ribbon Panelist as well).  He also serves on the Board of Directors of Congregation Etz Ahaim, a long-standing synagogue in Middlesex County in existence for almost a hundred years.

    Together, Dehnhard and Tawil intend on not only resurrecting the Matrimonial Law practice with the firm in Bridgewater, but to also grow their second office in Short Hills, where they were Shareholders at Budd Larner, to serve clients in that geographic area.
