Depending on the length of the marriage, if one spouse has supported the other and earned more income than the other during the marriage, there may be an obligation to pay alimony (spousal support). New Jersey also recently passed a new alimony reform bill, A845. Our attorneys at Garces, Grabler, and LeBrocq are fully knowledgeable of the new alimony law and are ready to explain it to you during a divorce consultation.

Generally, the law provides new mechanisms to apply for termination of alimony upon retirement in certain circumstances to clarify that the concept of “permanent” alimony can indeed have a termination date. The law also stipulates that, in marriages lasting less than 20 years, the length of alimony payments cannot exceed the length of the marriage itself. The new law also establishes specific guidelines for proving “cohabitation” which is the termination of alimony upon your ex-spouse’s living with a new partner, as well as new guidelines for the possible reduction of alimony upon losing employment.

At Garces, Grabler, and LeBrocq, we are here to ensure you are paying or receiving a fair alimony amount for a fair length of time. In many cases, there either should not be alimony or one spouse simply doesn’t want to pay alimony. We are here in those circumstances to fight for you and obtain a proper and fair resolution of what is required by law.

Jonathan A Kessous did an outstanding job in handling my case. He was able to get the most serious charge and several other charges against me dropped and my fine greatly reduced. I was most impressed with his professionalism.competence and the timely manner in which he responded to all my questions and concerns. This demonstrated to me that I was a priority and not just a client!

My uncle had some problems with meals at a Monmouth Count assisted living home. The home charged over $5,000 per month and he was not being offered food that he liked on many occasions and his complaints did not resolve the issue. I called Garces & Grabler on his behalf and they sent an attorney to the home to first speak with my uncle, then speak with the director. Within a few day, his dietary needs were met. Everything was resolved amicably and the law firm charged, in my opinion, a very reasonable fee for their services.

I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone. The service was epicable. Very thorough, efficient and friendly. It was a pleasure having you represent me.

I recently had gotten a ticket that was worth 5 points. I choose this firm because they were local to where the incident occurred. I was very nervous and unsure of the possible outcomes. They were so patient and reassuring with my case. Everything went smoothly and quickly and I was very happy with the final results! I would highly recommend them!

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.

Johnathan Kessous did a fantastic job handling my case. I hope i never need his expertise again...but if I do, he would be my first choice for legal representation. I had gotten a speeding ticket on the NJTPK going 84 in a 55 which resulted in a state trooper issuing me a 5 point ticket. Johnathan got it reduced down to zero points... just a fine.
