If you are planning for a divorce or child custody dispute, you are apt to feel a variety of emotions. While you may expect to feel sad or angry, you may also experience some confusion. Put simply, New Jersey family law can be incredibly complex. While an experienced attorney can coach you, you are likely to encounter certain surprises. An employability expert may be one of them.
New Jersey’s alimony and child support statutes both address an individual’s earning capacity. That is, when determining spousal or child support, the judge in your case likely wants to know how much you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse can earn. If this is either in dispute or tough to discern, you may need to hire an employability expert to provide an opinion.
