Jeralyn Lawrence to speak at the New Jersey State Bar Association Annual Meeting and Convention

Jeralyn Lawrence, founder and Managing Partner of Lawrence Law, will participate in a panel discussion at the NJSBA’s Annual Meeting and Convention on Modification and Termination of Alimony Based On Retirement.  The program, part of the convention’s Family Law track, will take place May 16, 2019 from 8:00 – 9:30 am in Salon C at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.

The program will answer the following questions:  When should alimony terminate versus be modified upon a payor’s retirement? Is it appropriate to consider investment performance on a party’s assets when considering an application to terminate alimony based on retirement? When will an “early” retirement be permitted as a basis to modify or terminate alimony? How best to negotiate retirement into a marital settlement agreement? How can a practitioner best submit the application for retirement? How can the record be preserved for appellate review?

The NJSBA Annual Meeting and Convention, May 15-17, is the place to be each year for education, CLE credits, networking, the industry’s top speakers and outstanding social events.
