The Tortoise and the Hare: The Importance of Timing in Motions to Modify Alimony


I can’t help but find it mildly amusing when irony lends itself to legal case names, much less Aesop’s famed fables. This most recent unpublished Appellate Division case is no exception.

In the post-divorce matter of Rich v. Rich, 20-2-5256, the New Jersey Appellate Division affirmed the denial of the lower Court’s refusal to entertain Mr. Rich’s request for a reduction in his alimony obligation to Ms. Rich. The couple were divorced in March of 2011, at which time Mr. Rich stipulated that his gross income was $105,000 per year.…

Bills Don’t Lie – NJ Appellate Division Affirms Enforceability of Amply Negotiated 1992 Pre-Nuptial Agreement


The sexy and gorgeous Columbian songstress Shakira once sang, amidst commentary from animated rapper Wyclef Jean, that “Hips Don’t Lie”. Apparently, legal bills don’t either.

In the recent matter of Guido v. Guido, Docket 20-2-5072, the NJ Appellate Division upheld a trial Court’s order declaring a 1992 pre-nuptial Agreement enforceable, apparently to the detriment of the shafted Appellant Wife.

The Agreement was signed just nine days shy of the exchanging of vows. At said time, the Wife was a 23 years young college grad. The Husband, five years senior his…

Salem County Dog Breeder Sued by the State for Selling Sick “Designer” Pups


Mixed-breed puppies are surely fashionable at the moment. While a Yorkie terrier certainly registers on the Richter Scale of cuteness alone, imagine the impact of said Yorkie intentionally cross-bred with the likes of a little white poodle.

It is safe to say that the popularity of these genetically trendy dogs equates to nice chunks of change – so nice, in fact, that South Jersey dog breeder Jessica Durkin is being accused of knowingly selling several designer canines in ill health to unsuspecting buyers.

According to the August 25, 2014 edition…

When Swedish Meatballs Go Sour – Why You Need a Cohabitation Agreement


Ah, love. In today’s world, it usually begins with a mutual right swipe on Tinder or an E-Harmony match notification, assuming the latter site didn’t reject your profile. After a few dates, typically revolving around drinks and/or overpriced appetizers, comes a declaration of exclusivity. Then arrives the U-HAUL, which, for all intents and purposes, means that IT (Ahem) JUST GOT REAL.

The single life graciously lends itself to one’s self, and not much else. The decision to finally take that long walk down the aisles of IKEA with someone other…

Family Law

Here at Stutzke Law, we acknowledge that the decision to proceed with a divorce is often difficult and extrordinarily painful.  It often takes clients several months, even years, before finding the courage to leave a spouse or partner, regardless of the reasons involved. Obviously, the decision to terminate a marriage is a major life change necessitating not only a psychological transition from “we” to “I”, but, in most cases, relocation and a complete financial restructuring.

Once a client concludes that a divorce is the best way to proceed, the first…
