A New Era in Matrimonial Law K

atz & Stefani, LLC, is a family law firm committed to efficiently helping clients resolve emotional family issues in a calm and dignified manner. Recognizing that divorce is “a very personal business,” the firm’s lawyers limit their caseload, allowing them to give clients significant personal attention. “You need to be comfortable with your divorce lawyer and you need to know you can get in touch with him or her,” explains founding partner Daniel R. Stefani. Combining their more than 50 years working in family law at some of the largest firms in Illinois, Stefani j o i n e d P. A n d r é Kat z to form Kat z & Stefani in 20 08. Serving high-profile and high-netwo r th in di v i dual s in premari t al and divorce matters, the f irm’s law yers are particularly attentive to maintaining the privacy of these individuals. Its partners’ strong business, financial, P. André Katz tax, and accounting backgrounds provide a valuable resource for understanding the complexities of business valuations, employee benefits, retirement planning, and other financial issues that arise in divorces involving high-networth individuals. Although skilled and experienced litigators, Katz and Stefani’s founders believe that not every case needs to be litigated. The firm’s lawyers

strive to resolve cases “in the conference room rather than the courtroom,” utilizing alternative dispute resolution methods. Katz & Stefani lawyers are experienced in navigating the complicated waters of interstate and international custody disputes implicating the laws of multiple jurisdictions, the Hague Convention and the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Enfo r c em ent Ac t . Sensitive to issues of parental alienation, the firm works with mental health professionals to identify and address the is sue as so on as possible. Katz & Stef ani law yer s are also adept at negotiating and crafting both premarital and postnuptial agreements. The firm’s 10 -attorney Daniel R. Stefani roster includes par tners David Ainley, Amanda Clayman, Shawn Bersson, and other experienced litigators in high stakes divorce cases. Both Katz and Stefani take a leadership role within their specialty, lecturing and publishing frequently on the topic of family law. Stefani writes a regular column on family law for the Chicago Lawyer. The Illinois Governor signed into law a new divorce statute ef fec tive Januar y 1, 2016, which was based primarily upon recommendations made by the Illinois Family Law Study Committee, which was chaired by Katz.

C

ORONAVIRUS, CIVIL R IGH T S , A N D T H E EL ECT ION may have dominated the headlines in 2020, but I’d argue that the family unit bore the brunt of the shockwaves t h at reverberated f rom l a st February on. Family is, after all, where all things begin. And, for better or worse, our family is whom we release our day-to-day stress with. Although the definition of family has evolved significantly over time, its significance on our individual and collective lives remains paramount. W h e t h e r i t ’s w e l c o m i n g new members into the family, dissolving familial bonds that no longer fortify us, or looking out

for those most important to us as we plan our exits from this earth, every decision regarding family deserves clarity, and the value of skilled advocacy and legal guidance can’t be overstated. In this issue, we present an array of f i rst-person stor ies f rom individuals who overcame some heavy challenges in their own families. The common takeaway? Effective lega l representation provides a guiding light while weathering the storm. As I personally look forward to 2021 with optimism for a better tomorrow (because let’s face it, we can really only go up from here, right?) it’s my wish this guide will help some people get there.

WE’RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE

What will family law look like in the “coronaverse” of 2020 and beyond? By Paul Hewett

D

ivorce is a highly stressful moment in a person’s life, even in the best of times. Combined with our present-day pandemic, clashing political views, and racial tensions, emotion can easily override logic when navigating the important decisions inherent in divorce proceedings. The coronavirus pandemic has forced courts and practitioners to adapt quickly, resulting in both temporary and long-term changes in the practice of family law. Family law issues are governed by the laws of each state, and each has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with individual emergency orders that affect the unique framework of each state’s family laws. HOW THE PANDEMIC HAS IMPACTED POSSESSION ORDERS In Texas, the Supreme Court ruled the pandemic will not abate or alter a court-ordered possession schedule. When the pandemic first hit, some parents in possession of their children refused to surrender them to the other parent for fear of possible exposure to the virus. The Texas Supreme Court resolved this problem by letting every parent know that the pandemic was no excuse to ignore a court’s possession order. However, other problems quickly emerged. What is a parent to do when the other parent 10 |

THE FAMILY L AW ISSUE

has tested positive for COVID? Can a parent be forced to send their children to a household where family members are actively suffering from the virus? Following the Texas Supreme Court’s order in this scenario directly puts the child’s health in jeopardy and ultimately exposes at least two households to the disease. Thankfully, most possession schedules in Texas orders are prefaced by a paragraph stating the parents may exercise possession of the children at any times agreed to, in advance, by the parents. This renders most courtordered possession schedules as the default schedule. As long as there is an agreement, parents are free to make possession decisions that are in the best interest of their children. Even so, there are still new custody cases being filed daily in which one parent has tested positive and is actively experiencing COVID symptoms, yet demanding they take possession of their child, per the court’s possession order. These situations are unfortunately left to the courts to decide on a case-by-case basis. TAKING FAMILY LAW CASES ONLINE The pandemic has also moved family law cases from the courtroom to behind a computer. To prevent courtroom hearings from becoming virus spreader events, a video

“One point to consider is that couples who might otherwise start the divorce process are choosing to stay together because of economic uncertainty.” conferencing platform, such as Zoom, is often employed. To satisfy a state law requiring courtroom hearings be open to the public, courts live stream all virtual hearings on YouTube. People should know their hearing can be viewed by anyone live on YouTube. Fortunately, the platform does not allow recording or dissemination of a live-streamed hearing, so there is little chance of a hearing “going viral.” Many Texas district court judges will offer some, or all, of their hearings via Zoom, which is effective and keeps cases moving through the dockets. In addition to resolving legal issues with no potential virus exposure, Zoom hearings have other benefits, such as allowing witnesses from outof-town to avoid travel and screen-sharing for attorneys to offer exhibits just as they would in person. Zoom video conferencing is not limited solely to courtroom proceedings. It’s also effectively used for mediations and client consultations. However, parties should be aware there are potential pitfalls with this revolutionary use of technology. Confidentiality and cybersecurity are of primary concern. Zoom, like any video conferencing platform, is vulnerable to hackers. Privileged information, such as attorney-client communications and confidential medical and health-related information, is discussed during Zoom attorney-client conferences, mediations, and

hearings. Because of this, attorneys, clients, mediators, judges, and courtroom personnel should do everything possible to ensure security measures have been taken, such as using meeting passwords, disabling guest chat, guest screen-sharing, and preventing others from joining the meeting before the host. DIVORCE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC Has the pandemic led to more divorce filings? Several memes are circulating on social media about divorce lawyers thriving because of the pandemic, playing on a belief that too much togetherness will ruin a marriage. These memes are funny but in a sad way. My analysis shows there was a temporary drop in divorce filings after the pandemic arrived. But after a couple of months, as we all adjusted to a new normal, the number of cases filed steadily rose back to previous levels, where it seems to remain. So, despite social media memes foreshadowing a divorce explosion, I have not witnessed a spike in family law cases. One point to consider is that couples who might otherwise start the divorce process are choosing to stay together because of economic uncertainty. Even if married partners no longer love each other, remaining together and sharing expenses W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

It’s worth noting that each state has its constitution, statutes, codes, and case law that considers and resolves family law issues. Some of those laws, for example, regarding child custody issues, may be uniform across the country. Others will be different. Property issues may vary from state to state. Texas, for instance, is only one of nine “community property” states in the country. Therefore, each spouse facing a family law issue is advised to seek legal counsel in their state, particularly from an attorney who specializes in family or matrimonial law. PIVOTING AND MOVING AHEAD IN THE NEW “CORONAVERSE” When our judicial system, along with the rest of the world, suddenly understood we’re not in Kansas anymore, but that we’re in the Coronaverse, time did stand still. Yet gradually courts, lawyers, and litigants alike have all found a way to continue life and the process of filing, litigating, and resolving family law issues. The legal process, security measures, and safety protocols are continuously evolving in each state. We should all concentrate on being part of the solution. In the history books, perhaps 2020 will be a year recalled as a time Americans came together, persevered, and made it our finest hour.

“A contingency plan that has been carefully considered and agreed upon is paramount.”

could be their best option for a long while. Other family law attorneys across the country will have their own experiences, perhaps contrary to mine. If a couple with children is considering divorce in the foreseeable future, it is advisable to pre-plan how to care for the children should a family member contract the virus. A contingency plan that has been carefully considered and agreed upon is paramount. The plan should specifically address who will care for the children, for how long, and what safety protocols will be followed. If possible, decisions for the care of a child are best made by fit parents, before anticipated litigation. Except in the most egregious circumstances, parents should not leave these decisions for litigation. If a contingency plan is agreed upon by the parents entering the divorce process, the plan should be made part of the final divorce decree. This helps assure each parent can be held accountable for the safety and welfare of their children. Divorcing spouses should not let the fear of the virus or the unknown lead to irrational behavior. Don’t withdraw all your money from the bank, don’t hoard essential items, and don’t go off the grid. Instead, realize education is key. Talk to your doctor, your law yer, with a counselor, and learn from trusted sources.

THE NEW PPE

How to plan your pandemic preparedness estate—all from the safety of home. By Jennifer Stavros

T

he quiet space of the global pandemic is bringing forward a lot of time for reflection about the frailty of life. Perhaps this might also be a good time to think about something important alongside it: end of life matters and digital estate planning…no matter what age you are. There are several resources that allow for folks to start their journey into expressing their final wishes for their end-of-life matters. Online estate-planning services like Final Roadmap and Aftervalt can help with organizing these documents and can be a great place to start. But given that legal matters vary by jurisdiction and focus, it is advisable to talk with a professional to ensure that documentation is ready, secure, and compliant in the event of an unexpected or untimely death. Most attorneys offer virtual appointments so planning doesn’t have to wait until pandemic restrictions lift. YOUR LEGAL DOCUMENT LINEUP Documentation is the ultimate goal of digital estate plan discussions, and much of this needs to be handled proactively throughout life. While creating an estate plan, there are three major documents to get solidified: a healthcare directive (pre-death), a durable power of attorney (also known as an advance directive for both pre-death and after death matters), and a will. Each of these documents plays an important role in estate planning. “They are your legal PPE right now…your pandemic preparedness estate” says attorney Kem Marks,

18 |

THE FAMILY L AW ISSUE

founder of Just In Time Legal Solutions in Alabama. A healthcare directive is useful in the events that lead up to death and is often used in conjunction with other documents in the estate-planning portfolio. Healthcare directives convey wishes to loved ones regarding medical matters and can communicate specific wishes in the event of health downfalls such as COVID-19 or other potentially lethal prognoses. “Without a healthcare [directive or] proxy, the decisions of your medical matters will be left to the [attending] medical staff.” Marks explains. Secondly, a power of attorney form is useful for addressing healthcare wishes and can be invoked while you are alive, but it does considerably more than that. It assigns a designated person to make choices on your behalf in the event that you are not able to or prefer not to make them yourself. A power of attorney is especially important when it comes to management of business items such as safety deposit boxes, assets, and other commodities that might need to be accessed, released, or otherwise designated. The third, and debatably “the most important document, is the will.” says Peter Mott, a trusts and estates attorney in Connecticut. Wills come into play after someone dies, and they contain designations for both your property and digital assets. “It is not a single document.” Marks clarifies. The complexity of a will can and often does vary. “It is the document that is the legacy of [an individual’s] personal power,” he explains. As such, the wording on it can be critical.


UNSPLASH/ANUKRATI OMAR, ISTOCK/ PROSTOCK-STUDIO

“Many wills are set up with specific values. Pursue the most elastic ones for their current circumstances.”

The approach to writing a will can involve fairly informal language or very specific details. Someone can write something as simple as they’d like to leave their estate to their daughter. Alternatively, some choose to be much more specific—like detailing they’d like to leave their estate to their 4-year-old daughter Anita, their partner Aldo, their niece Tricia—with finite language regarding designees and assets. “Many wills are set up with specific values. Pursue the most elastic ones for their current circumstances,” cautions Marks. “When a will might be written originally, a client might have a young child but there might not be several children at the time.” A client can choose to add a line that leaves their estate to the then-known child with the addition and any other minor children I might have at the time of my death. This slight note can boost the document’s reach. In more intensive estate-planning matters, a fourth document comes into a play: the trust. “Trusts are not part of a basic estate plan,” Marks says. Trusts are more specialized estate plans that are for people with major assets and complex matters. “These are for people with situations like owning houses in different states and celebrities.” Marks says. While they are not necessary for most individuals, you should consult a legal professional and ask them if you are unsure.

THE DEVIL IS IN THE (EVERYDAY) DETAILS All of these documents are important when it comes to the formal estate-planning process, but you should also pay close attention to signatures and contracts that come up

in the everyday course of your lifetime. Failure to do so could have catastrophic results as some contracts can even override your end-of-life documentation. Things like beneficiaries from deeds, joint bank accounts, and life insurance policies cannot be amended without getting changes in before death occurs. They often require specific permissions and layers of requirements to make changes. Removals can sometimes require multiple parties to sign off and can even result in escalation to litigation and court orders. For instance, if someone forgets to take off their first spouse on a life insurance policy and then later remarries but doesn’t change the policy to have the first spouse removed, the first spouse will legally be entitled to the life insurance benefits upon the death. Some states also have contracts which include a “right of survivorship” in the deeds of their homes. This can by default designate a home to go to whoever doesn’t pass first. “It can even override the will!” Marks cautions. KEEP TIME—AND A LAWYER—ON YOUR SIDE Ultimately, estate planning can be a very complex and layered affair. With all the unpredictability caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the best time to start those conversations. The best step forward is a proactive one. A legal professional can help guide you go through and make the process a straightforward and fruitful endeavor. You and your loved ones deserve to have things in order; consider making a call and getting things in place. You never know when you might need it. W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

WHEN DNA ISN’T THE TIE THAT BINDS

Determining biological parenthood is as easy as getting a DNA test. Determining legal parenthood is more complicated altogether—especially as the composition of the American family continues to evolve. By Brittney M. Miller and James J. Vedder

P

onder this attention-grabbing headline: “Man Forced to Pay Child Support Even Though DNA Test Proves Child Is Not His.” It’s an arresting illustration of the reality that the parent-child relationship is not always strictly biological. Depending on the circumstances, in fact, the law might treat an individual as a child’s legal parent even if there’s no biological connection whatsoever between them. In other cases, someone not biologically related to a child might seek to establish parental rights over a biological parent’s objection. The considerable moral, social, and financial obligations of raising children make it important to understand when the law presumes someone is a parent and, if necessary, what can be done to challenge the presumption of parenthood. TYPES OF PARENTAGE PRESUMPTIONS A legal “presumption” is, simply, a shortcut that helps a court reach a conclusion. In family law, the most important presumption is the presumption of parentage—when an individual is legally considered to be a child’s parent. Presumptions of parentage can generally be divided into three categories: marital, biological, and intentbased. Let’s take a look. Marital: The oldest and most common parentage presumption. It assumes that a child born of a marriage is the biological offspring of the mother and her husband. 20 |

THE FAMILY L AW ISSUE

It was created out of necessity: Before the advent of DNA paternity testing, courts relied on the marital relationship to establish biological connections—a presumption that also served to reinforce societal norms and public-policy goals, including keeping the traditional family unit intact and shielding children from the social stigma associated with “illegitimacy.” One of the best-known examples of the marital presumption is the 1989 Supreme Court case Michael H. v. Gerald D., in which a child’s biological father, who was not married to the mother when the child was born, attempted to establish parental rights. Because California had a marital-presumption statute, however, the mother’s husband was already presumed to be the child’s father. To challenge the presumption with a genetic test, the biological father was required to commence a court action within two years of the child’s birth, which he failed to do. As a result, the court determined that the biological father could not establish any parental rights to the child despite the innate biological connection. Most state parentage laws feature some version of the marital presumption, and family courts continue to rely on it even though its public-policy rationale—about which more below—is increasingly outdated. Biological: Commonly used today in contestedparentage proceedings. Widely accessible DNA testing makes it possible to know, with scientific certainty, the


UNSPLASH.COM/KELLY SIKKEMMA

identity of a child’s biological parents. It’s tempting to view genetic testing as the best, most efficient way to determine parentage, but with many individuals and couples now opting for assisted reproductive technology of various kinds to start a family, there are instances when a child’s biological parents do not necessarily want to be the legal parents. Some surrogacy arrangements, for instance, create both biological and what are called “intended” parents. The surrogate may have a biological connection to the child (or she may not, if a donor egg is used), but she likely has no intention of parenting the child once she gives birth—she is instead simply carrying the child for the intended parents. Using strict biological connections to establish parentage here is obviously not the right call. Intent-based: Focuses on the actions and wishes of the parent seeking to establish parentage, not on his or her marital relationship or biological connection to the child. The Uniform Parentage Act of 2017 (UPA) offers an example of an intent-based approach. All states have adopted some form of the UPA, but only a handful have enacted the most recent version. Under the act, an individual is presumed to be the parent if he or she lived in the same household as the child for the first two years of the child’s life and, during that time, “openly held out the child as the individual’s child.” This presumption applies even if the individual is not married

to the child’s mother and has no biological connection to the child. Another way someone can help establish parentage is by signing a voluntary acknowledgment of parentage or being listed as a parent on the child’s birth certificate. The legal significance of these two factors, however, varies by state. PARENTAGE PRESUMPTIONS AND SAME-SEX MARRIAGE Parentage is one area of American law that has not kept pace with the evolving modern family. Many state parentage laws use gender-specific language and appear to apply only to heterosexual couples; they refer to “paternity” instead of “parentage” because the focus is on identifying a child’s father. The child is presumed to have one mother—the woman who gave birth to the child—which does not reflect reality for many families today. The use of gender-specific language creates uncertainty for same-sex couples, because it’s unclear which parentage presumptions apply to their family. In 2017, the Arizona Supreme Court addressed a gender-specific parentage statute in McLaughlin v. Jones, in which a married lesbian couple had a child via artificial insemination. Even though only one of the women had a biological connection to the child, the couple held themselves out as the child’s parents and entered into a co-parenting agreement. W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

CHALLENGING THE PRESUMPTION OF PARENTAGE Once parentage has been presumed, circumstances or relationships may change such that a presumed parent or third party wants to challenge the presumption. Depending on the facts of the case and in which state the action is brought, a presumption of parentage can be rebutted by: • rescinding the voluntary acknowledgment of parentage within the required time frame; • contesting parentage on the basis of fraud, duress, or material mistake of fact; • proving that the presumed father and mother never cohabited or engaged in sexual intercourse during the probable time of conception; • establishing that the presumed parent never openly held out the child as his or her own; or • submitting to a genetic test. However, even if an individual can successfully rebut parentage, a court is not required to allow it. Family courts generally have discretion to do what is in the child’s best interests, which may include refusing to disestablish parentage. To evaluate the child’s best interests, family courts look at how much time has passed since parentage was established, and what emotional and financial impact disestablishing parentage would have on the child. In sum, significant rights and obligations attach to the presumption of parentage. It’s precisely because of these rights and obligations that parents and third parties are motivated to establish parentage (or disestablish it, depending on the circumstances). In such cases, the courts must look beyond a child’s biological connections and consider the parental rights and financial obligations at stake, the intended family structure, and the child’s best interests. Given the legal complexity and timesensitive nature of parentage cases, it’s important to consult with a qualified family-law attorney when parentage is in question.

“Family courts generally have discretion to do what is in the child’s best interests, which may include refusing to disestablish parentage.”

When the couple later separated, the child’s biological mother attempted to terminate her former partner’s right to contact with the child. The non-biological mother argued that the marital presumption that would apply to a heterosexual couple who had a child during marriage should also apply to their relationship. The Arizona Supreme Court agreed, holding that the nonbiological mother was entitled to the same parental rights as the biological mother. The latter sought review of the Arizona decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, which denied it. Because this issue varies by state, many same-sex couples decide to formalize the parent-child relationship through adoption instead of relying on parentage statutes. This ensures that the non-biological parent will be accorded the same rights as the biological one.

PRENUPTIAL PERIL

Prenups aren’t always bulletproof, but there’s hope if you end up exposed in a divorce. By Laura Wheatman Hill

A

t the age of 23, I had a trust fund of nearly $200 thousand from my grandfather. He built a very successful career as an attorney, and the trust fund was his way of allowing each of his grandchildren an opportunity to pursue a law degree. I decided on a different path, opting instead for an M.A. in teaching. The trust fund paid for my degree in full with a sizeable amount left over. The year I completed my degree, I became engaged to my boyfriend of five years. I was young and very much in love. THE EARLY DAYS OF OUR MARRIAGE – AND WHERE THINGS WENT WRONG My mother, though she loved my fiancé, insisted on paying for a lawyer to draw up a prenuptial agreement. Other than my trust fund, my fiancé and I had no other valuable assets. My husband-to-be was planning to go to dental school and my mother’s concern was that, if the trust fund was used for his education, I would be in a tough spot if the marriage ever fell apart. Indeed, she was right to be concerned. He went to dental school and received federal loans to cover tuition. I was a full-time public school teacher. We used money from my trust fund to pay our bills, as one teacher’s salary didn’t cover all of our living expenses. We lived in a safe, nice apartment, and we went out from time to time. We traveled home to the West Coast multiple times a year and took weekend trips. The money went fast, but at the end of dental school, I still had a chunk of my trust left. We used it on a down 24 |

payment on our first home, a large, half-million-dollar ranch house in Portland, Oregon. My husband worked as an associate dentist for several years before establishing his dental practice near our home. Then he left me. He had several reasons, most importantly that he didn’t love me, but as we began to navigate mediation and lawyers, one thing became very clear. This was a good time for him to leave me, financially.


INTO THE FOG OF DIVORCE When we were married, my ex-husband’s income as a dentist was not what most would expect. Our income every month went toward our mortgage, living expenses, and my husband’s student loans. He hired me at the dental practice to handle the marketing and social media tasks, and I earned a little extra money as a freelance tutor and writer. For the most part, my primary occupation was caring for our two children. If he had left our marriage a few more years down the road, his portion of our income would have been far more significant. But instead, when he left, he was in debt and earned under $200 thousand a year in an expensive West Coast city. We were living paycheck to paycheck, and his spousal support calculation was going to reflect that. In the aftermath of his decision to leave our marriage, I was upset that he was leaving me after I supported him financially through dental school and was the primary caregiver for our children. I could not understand his insinuations that I didn’t contribute enough. I was also upset with myself—feeling duped, heartbroken, and cheated out of a career that I worked hard to build for myself. Here I was staring into the abyss of my future—and off in the distance was the man who vowed to love and support me for the rest of our lives. I never thought my mother’s concerns would ever become my life. The prenup that she insisted we set up existed as a paper copy in my father’s file cabinet. I asked him to scan it and send it over to my attorney. I came into this marriage with my trust fund, and I was going to leave it with my trust fund.

sell my house if I didn’t want to. My name was on the title as much as his, and I had to consent before anything was sold. Still, I wanted a fresh start…but how? Luckily my father had a few ideas—although I felt like I was being sent back to him with the goat that had been my dowry. I would rent from him and have a safe place for my kids to live, close enough to our old neighborhood that they didn’t have to change schools. So no, my prenup did not save me. But it was all going to be alright. THE BENEFIT OF SKILLFULL NEGOTIATION Working with an attorney, I learned that I could negotiate. Even though my prenup was not going to help me, I could ask for maintenance and compensatory spousal support. I had a good case for both because of the money I contributed during dental school from the trust, my earned income during our marriage, and my role as caregiver to our children these last few years. My soonto-be ex-husband might not have found my contributions valuable, but the Oregon courts did. Also, I found that I could negotiate money from the sale of our home. There were some challenges my attorney and I encountered. Oregon is a no-fault state, which means that, although my estranged husband appeared to be the villain in our story, that didn’t necessarily mean I’d win in court. After some back-andforth, we agreed to spousal support that would cover my basic living expenses as well as money from the house sale to make up for the depleted trust fund. The logic was that I would no longer be getting the benefit of his high income so I would require more money up front to start a savings plan for myself, going forward, with my low-paying career.

ISTOCK/ Z_WEI, CIUPACIUPS

“My soon-to-be ex-husband might not have found my contributions valuable, but the Oregon courts did.”

COULD MY PRENUP SAVE ME? Just as I was feeling better, because of the prenup in place, my attorney explained that it would not do me any good with our circumstances. All the money covered in it was gone—spent on joint marital property, which included items such as our rent, our bills, and the house. As one would imagine, this was a very disappointing setback. As I was learning this news, my ex-husband-to-be wanted to put our house on the market. I expressed to him that I wouldn’t be able to qualify for a mortgage, nor would I be a good candidate as a renter. After all, I was an unemployed single mom. In his mind, I could have found a job and all my problems would go away. But in my mind, it was going to take time to rebuild my career after the sacrifices I made to put our family first. Regardless of what his personal opinions were of my financial situation, the fact remained that I did not have to

FINAL THOUGHTS ON PRENUPS Just because my prenup was not helpful for me, does not mean they are worthless across the board. But what do you do if a prenup fails to protect your assets? In my case, I had a loving familial support system that provided my kids and me with a home. I also had a skilled lawyer who was able to navigate me through my divorce with creative problem solving, negotiation, and logic that made a strong case for my out-of-court settlement. Although my life changed overnight, and my vision for what my life would be did not turn out like I hoped it would, I’m able to work toward providing a better future for myself and my children.

MY HUSBAND DIDN’T WANT TO STAY MARRIED…BUT HE DIDN’T WANT A DIVORCE

Patience—and the law—prevails when an uncooperative partner avoids divorce proceedings. By Jennifer Billock

THE FAMILY L AW ISSUE


ISTOCK/ ADENE SANCHEZ

A

couple of years ago, I returned home from a work trip to a half-emptied house. The day before, I texted my husband letting him know our home security camera was offline, and he assured me that it was probably just an internet glitch. But I realized, when I walked through the door that night, that the real reason our security camera was offline was that he unplugged it so I couldn’t see that he was abandoning our marriage and taking half of our possessions with him. Suffice it to say, I was confused about why this was happening—until I checked my email and found a message from him. He wrote that he moved to Minnesota to start a new life with someone else and was filing for divorce. That day was the beginning of a long and frustrating process of getting divorced from an uncooperative partner. My story, although painful, is not unique. As I later learned, it is common for one of the partners in an ending marriage to be resistant throughout the process of divorce. After all, divorce is typically stressful, expensive, and time-consuming. There were things I learned from my own experience that I hope will be helpful to anyone going through the process of divorce with an uncooperative partner. Here are some of the common ways a partner can delay the divorce process—and advice from family law attorneys on how to handle it.

YOUR PARTNER COULD IGNORE THE PROCESS SERVER I was fortunate in that my ex-husband went to the courthouse and filed for divorce himself. But usually, one spouse is served with divorce papers, and the process of divorce is initiated. If the served party is uncooperative, they will sometimes avoid the process server at all costs. For example, they may refuse to sign for them, pretend they’re not home, or move to an address where locating them may be difficult. If you’ve exhausted all options to get your spouse to accept the divorce papers, you can ask the court to do a last-resort service by publication, says Tami Kamin Meyer, a solo practitioner in Ohio who works with clients on domestic relations and personal bankruptcy cases. The notice of divorce is published in a newspaper and is a substitute for serving the papers to your spouse in person. The divorce process then continues. YOUR PARTNER COULD INTERFERE IN THE PROCESS When I reviewed the court documents for my divorce, I was surprised to see that my ex-husband provided false information regarding his address and hid several bank accounts from me. Both perjury and interference with discovery can cause a significant delay in the divorce process. According to Kamin Meyer, it’s better to leave this one up to your lawyer who can file for contempt W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

of court against your spouse or push harder as needed. And don’t be afraid to switch lawyers if you feel yours isn’t going to bat for you. YOUR PARTNER COULD MAKE UNDUE ACCUSATIONS REGARDING YOUR CHILDREN According to Michael Mosberg, a family lawyer with Aronson Mayefsky & Sloan in New York, the single biggest time delay in divorce cases is when children are involved, and the spouses can’t come to an agreement on custody. Or worse, one of the spouses levels serious accusations toward the other about their conduct with the children. Mosberg advises that if you cannot amicably agree on a resolution about custody and access for your children, or if undue accusations are made, there’s going to be an appointment of an attorney or a guardian for the children as well as some form of a professional therapist to do a forensic evaluation. Not only is that time-consuming, but it is also expensive. Mosberg suggests trying to find a dynamic that would make an uncooperative spouse more cooperative, whether that’s discussing custody in a meeting with lawyers, without lawyers, with a mediator, letting the lawyers handle everything, or something else. “It’s about assessing the spouse’s personality and then figuring out what dynamic is best to move the process forward.”


ALAMY/B CHRISTOPHER, ISTOCK/ ALINA555

YOUR PARTNER COULD MAKE PRIVATE THREATS When my ex-husband discovered that I hired a lawyer, he began to call and threaten to take my house, my car, and my dog. Nothing ever came of those threats, but it was concerning enough that I worked with my lawyer to relinquish his claim to my belongings. Kamin Meyer says there are a few options here: First, get every communication in writing. Don’t answer their calls and don’t speak to them in person. Do everything over text or email so there’s a written record of what they’re saying. You should also make a list and take photos of your property so if anything goes missing, you have a record of that as well. And if it comes to it, bring all your documentation to the court to show a track record of poor behavior on your spouse’s behalf. YOUR PARTNER COULD SKIP COURT DATES When I arrived at the courthouse for our scheduled divorce hearing, I realized quickly that my ex-husband was going to be a no-show. After 10 minutes of waiting for him to arrive, the judge called to find out where he was. My ex-husband let us all know that he was not planning to come to court that day. His reason? It was simply because he didn’t feel like it. Although the judge wasn’t happy about my ex-husband’s decision, he did what typically happens in this situation. He gave my ex-husband a second chance. “Oftentimes the court may give them a couple more chances,” Mosberg said. “But if the person just simply refuses to appear or respond, then you would seek a default judgment which gives you all the relief you’ve asked for. The party who refuses to participate has waived their right to assert anything to the contrary.” This is a rare situation though, Mosberg concedes. Most people will take some sort of action once the divorce case heads to the court because they are afraid of potential consequences. In my situation, the judge allowed my exhusband to call in to our new court date a month later and be present at the hearing over the phone, provided he signed and emailed the divorce papers ahead of time. My divorce was finalized at our second court date.

“The party who refuses to participate has waived their right to assert anything to the contrary.”

SEEING IT THROUGH TO THE END Although it may seem like a struggle with an uncooperative partner will never end, all divorce proceedings do eventually conclude. “It is imperative to be patient,” Kamin Meyer said. “[Divorce] can take years depending on assets, anger, and financial resources. Or it can be quick if both parties are amenable and honest about their assets and intentions. But one party cannot prevent a divorce from happening. They can prolong it, but they can’t prevent it.”

IN FOCUS

HOW TO NAVIGATE FALSE ABUSE CLAIMS IN A CHILD CUSTODY CASE There’s hope for families to recover—a good lawyer is key. By Ashley Jones

C

laims of abuse, neglect, and the like can send families into a tailspin during child custody cases. When such allegations against a parent or family member are untrue, knowing how to navigate false abuse claims can help address the accusations in a way that does not escalate the situation further. During an ongoing custody dispute and evaluation, my husband’s ex-wife accused our then 4-year-old son of inappropriately touching his 12-year-old half-sister and 10-year-old half-brother. Although my son was far too young to understand the implications of these allegations, the impact on our family, post-accusation, was unfathomable. My heart crumbled reading the words in the message that my husband’s ex-wife sent in OurFamilyWizard, which is the child custody and co-parenting app we were using at the time. Was this some sort of misunderstanding? How could anyone be so low as to accuse a child, especially one so young, of something so heinous? The emotions of the entire situation made it difficult to clearly process the next steps to take once these allegations were made. Our family leaned heavily on the advice of my husband’s attorney, but looking back, it would have been helpful to have been informed about why false abuse claims happen during child custody cases and how to process this distressing event.

THE FAMILY L AW ISSUE

WHY DO PARENTS MAKE FALSE CLAIMS? “False sexual abuse allegations are generally fueled by anger and/or a desire for revenge, and the accusing parent uses the child to get back at their former partner,” Jann Blackstone, Psy.D., a retired superior court child custody mediator and co-author of CoParenting Through Separation and Divorce: Putting Your Children First explains. “The motive is usually to prevent visitation and gain full custody. A child may be asked to lie, fooled into lying, or even brainwashed into supporting the false allegation. Studies show there may be a mental health component to consider when a parent knowingly lies or conducts a campaign of degradation in order to undermine the other parent in the child’s eyes.” This phenomenon of making false abuse claims during a custody case is sometimes known as a “silver bullet,” because the parent making the accusation knows their claims will need to be investigated and, in the meantime, they will likely not be penalized by the courts for keeping the children from the other parent. The court may even impose restrictions like an order of supervised visitation or even a suspension of visitation on the accused abuser while investigations are pending. Prior to making claims of abuse, my husband’s exwife had repeatedly kept the children with her during our court-ordered visitation time. These actions

“The motive is usually to prevent visitation and gain full custody. A child may be asked to lie, fooled into lying, or even brainwashed into supporting the false allegation.”

are the primary reason my husband initially filed an enforcement motion against his ex-wife, as well as a modification of custody to begin with which included the involvement of a child custody evaluator and an amicus attorney for the children. Various reasons were given over the years as to why the children would not be visiting us—from being overscheduled to the children simply not wanting to come—but this was the first time that such harmful claims of abuse had been made. In this instance, it seemed as if the “silver bullet” of an abuse claim was being used to validate keeping the children yet again during the pending case. “Another reason [for claims to be made] is when a party has been blinded by anger at the other party,” Christine Fitzgerald of Seiden Family Law explains. “Finally, there are parents who are perpetually the victim, and they are able to convince themselves that the other parent is abusing the children despite the fact that there is no abuse.” In our situation, I believed my husband’s ex-wife was attempting to make up what sounded like a logical excuse for why she would be keeping the children with her for the weekend. There was already a pattern of this behavior, especially when my husband and I would make plans that conflicted with her plans with the children. Although I expected this pattern of behavior

to continue, I never imagined she would sink to the level of accusing our 4-year-old of abuse. RESPONDING TO ALLEGATIONS The onslaught of consequences when false abuse allegations are made during a high-conflict custody dispute can be overwhelming, and investigations into these claims are often costly. Mental health evaluations, medical examinations, and family protective services investigations can take a toll on the entire family. These intrusive investigations can cause mental anguish, relationship strain, and a host of other issues. That is why it’s important to know how to respond when such claims are made. “Since every case is different, the parent who has been accused should consult with their family law attorney about how best to deal with the allegations,” Fitzgerald says. “Depending on the specific allegations, I may have my client also address the issue with a criminal attorney. In most cases where the allegations of abuse are not serious, the accused parent should not leave an allegation out there without a response, which should be vetted through the parent’s family law attorney. “ Although it may feel less than instinctive to cooperate with the requests of attorneys, judges, and health professionals involved in lieu of defending yourself or

a loved one with fiery vigor, it is best to comply with the investigations and yield to the advice of professionals. I believe that this is ultimately what helped us overcome the false claims made against our 4-year-old. “Additionally, do not stoop to the other parent’s level and make false accusations back. It is never beneficial to you or your children,” Fitzgerald recommends. Your attorney may recommend that you gather evidence and statements from those who can speak to your parenting, as this can help support your stance. As groundless as the claims might be, if they were true and the shoe was on the other foot, you would likely want every action taken to ensure that your child was not being harmed in any way. “If the parent making the accusation is spreading this in the community, another potential option, depending on the circumstances, to handling an allegation is to file an application to restrain the other parent from making false allegations,” Fitzgerald says. PERSONAL & FAMILIAL RAMIFICATIONS When false abuse allegations were made against our son, it took two weeks for me to muster the strength to acknowledge the accusations out loud. I let my husband tell the story to anyone who would listen, but I could not verbally make my mouth form the words. Sitting in my therapist’s office where I had already told so many terrible stories throughout the first two years of our custody case, I let it all out. My words spilled out like vomit in a jumbled mess of phrasing that made my mind melt. Although I knew I had not done anything wrong, nor had my husband or my son, I had so much guilt and emotional pain. I was also infuriated that this was happening to us. We did nothing to hurt anyone, yet we were being treated as if we had.

Once allegations of abuse have been said, they cannot be unheard. In our case, the allegations were untrue, but to anyone who heard the accusations, questions had to be raised. Had my son experienced any abuse? Was my son ever alone with his half-siblings? The answers were all no, but at the same time, it felt intrusive and defeating. I spoke with a therapist regularly, continued to be actively involved in the lives of my two biological sons, and did my best to interact with my stepchildren as normally as possible when finally allowed to, but this was all done under a constant cloud of worry. It was not easy, but I had to remind myself that none of this was my stepchildren’s fault. They were children who had been alienated and were not responsible for the unrest caused by their mother. CLOSING THOUGHTS Unfortunately, false abuse allegations are not uncommon in the world of shared custody where some divorced parents will use any means necessary to hurt one another. These types of alienating tactics are often discussed in hushed whispers behind closed doors, but

when they were used to target my own child, it turned our world upside down. “Something that parents must remember: Your child deserves a relationship with both of his or her parents,” Blackstone advises. “You are not the best parent just because you think so or know the most about your child. The best parent is the parent that shares that information with their co-parent to ensure their child is safe, happy, and secure at both homes. A true co-parent puts their child first, works with their co-parent, and uses their children’s best interest as the criteria for all decision making.” For us, when co-parenting was near non-existent and false abuse claims were made, seeking legal guidance, professional help, and keeping emotions in check during the entire ordeal was the only thing that got us through. “Consult with an attorney as soon as the accusation surfaces, whether in writing to you personally, spoken to you, in the court document, or to the authorities,” Fitzgerald says. “You should always know your rights, know what options you have to combat the false accusation, and know how to handle the false accusation. Knowledge is power.”

MY LAWYER FAILED ME AS AN ADVOCATE IN MY PARENTS’ DIVORCE Here’s how to ensure your children are respected during a custody battle. By Rebecca Rush

36 | THE FAMILY L AW ISSUE


A

ISTOCK/ SASIISTOCK

ccording to the Children’s Law Center of Connecticut, back in November 1992, a 6-year-old girl was shot to death by her father during a supervised visitation session at the office of the Child Protection Council of Northeastern Connecticut. In the aftermath of this tragic event, both law professionals and parents sought to examine the way the system had failed. One major way was the absence of legal services specifically for children. This was how the Children’s Law Center was founded. My parents’ divorce was not this contentious—my sister and I are still very much alive. But it was contentious enough that 10 years later, when I went to see a therapist in the town we lived in during the divorce, he brought it up numerous times. Their divorce took over two years, much of which revolved around a custody battle for me. I wanted to live with my father. My father wanted me to live with him. But I was terrified of my mother, who was verbally and emotionally abusive. She would come home from a long day in court, yelling into the darkness, “They are saying that I’m an alcoholic! You have to go to court and tell them that I am not and that you want to live with me.” My mother is, in fact, an alcoholic. I could not do what she asked. But I couldn’t go against her either. She told me one night that if I went to live with my father, that she would never talk to me again. That I would no longer have a mother. I was 12 years old at the time and did not feel prepared to make that kind of life-altering decision.

THE JOURNEY TOWARD FINDING MY VOICE A lawyer was appointed by the court to represent my sister and me. We met her for pizza on a snowy winter night in the center of town while she told us that her job was to fight for us. To the best of my knowledge, that meeting was the extent of her fight. I texted my dad recently to ask him if he could get me in touch with the woman who represented my sister and me, as I began to think about writing this piece. “Why would you want to get in touch with her? She sucked,” he texted back. Harsh as his words were, a weight lifted off me. All these years, I’ve thought that my inability to speak up and state what I wanted, what I knew would be best for me, was my failure. Now I know that I was just a child. It wasn’t my job. I am in recovery from addiction and work a 12-step program. In my first year of recovery, when I still did not feel safe standing up for myself in situations, my sponsor would tell me to say it was their idea. It was easier to say no when I could point to someone else and say, “They think this is best.” I think a good child advocate is able to do that, to build trust with children in order to present their recommendations to the judge as their own. And for the children, that piece could be the dif fe re n ce b et we e n silence and having a voice. For some children, it’s the difference between life and death.

point. When I represented kids, I met with them on multiple occasions,” she continued. In these cases, kids need an adult they can trust to prioritize their best interests, or they will see no point in sharing their wants and needs. Beyond that, they need to feel confident that their parents won’t get upset about what they have said. “There were times when I wouldn’t share certain things that a child said with the parents and then there were other times where I felt the parents absolutely needed to hear what their child was saying. A good attorney for children will know when sharing information is appropriate and when it will destroy the relationship between the attorney and the child,” she concluded. RESPECTING CHILDREN THROUGHOUT THE DIVORCE PROCESS Although I am no longer a child, and my parents’ divorce was decades ago, hearing that the system put in place does work was heartening. That perhaps my case was the exception rather than the rule. It is not enough to want to do right. One needs the proper training, effort, and the power to carry it out. “ It ’s re ally ab out respect,” says Jeanne Milstein, former State Child Advocate of Connecticut. “The goal has to be to promote the best possible outcomes for children and families in transition or crisis by providing quality, affordable access to resources and legal support. We need to create safe and stable environments for kids, whose parents are in crisis or conflict, so they feel safe, heard, and like their voices matter. And in some cases, we need to give the parents the necessary tools to communicate. It’s most important to listen to the children and try to diffuse conflict as much as possible,” she continued. Divorce isn’t easy for anyone. But it’s hardest on children, who lack agency and understanding. The ability to gain a child’s trust, to help ease communication, to seek out and present what is truly in their best interests is a complicated mission. It can, however, be carried out with grace and compassion.

“A good attorney for children will know when sharing information is appropriate and when it will destroy the relationship between the attorney and the child.”

A CHILD ADVOCATE’S TAKE I asked a former staff attorney at The Children’s Law Center, Kathryn Bissonnette, who currently works at Brown, Paindiris & Scott, LLP, in Glastonbury, CT, to weigh in. “Typically, the parents aren’t in a good position to explain these things to their kids. While a parent may have good intentions, they may end up being too direct and enter the realm of telling the child what to tell the lawyer in order to further their own positions in a custody dispute context,” she said. Bissonnette agrees that taking kids out to pizza once is not sufficient to establish rapport. “The attorney should speak with the parents about their child’s interests first so that they have a jumping-off

THE FAMILY L AW ISSUE

ver its 40-year

history, Kuder, Smollar, Friedman & Mihalik has built a preeminent family law practice that has a reputation throughout DC, Maryland and Virginia for its extensive knowledge and compassionate service to clients experiencing challenging life events. The year 2020 has proven to be extraordinarily challenging for families, and especially for families going through separation, divorce, or custody disputes. The financial uncertainties of the world during and after the coronavirus pandemic, including job loss, income reduction, and school closures, further complicates the resolution of these disputes. In light of the changes in the world, KSFM remains ready and available to assist in all matters, using alternative strategies – such as negotiation, mediation, and collaborative law – as well as litigation to resolve disputes. The firm has employed technology designed to seamlessly handle family law matters from afar, and has implemented regimented safety protocols for our personnel and guests visiting our office. Our firm continues to be committed to facilitating the best resolution possible for our clients and their families. We would like to announce that Makia Weaver, Esq. has joined our team as an associate. Prior to joining KSFM, Makia served as a public defender in Maryland for three years, where she honed valuable skills in client-centered advocacy, case negotiations, and conflict resolution. We extend our best wishes to everyone as we navigate this new landscape and we hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy.

Strategic Solutions FOR COMPLEX FAMILY LAW NEEDS Scott M. Stickler

The best way to settle any case, inside or outside the courtroom, is to be better prepared than the other side. We believe in strategic rather than reactive thinking. We recognize that every case is unique and that our approach must be distinct and tactical. People turn to us when they are facing challenging situations involving their marriage, custody of their children, or other legal concerns involving their family. These issues are often complicated and the stakes are high. Clients benefit from our inventive solutions. Opponents are unable to predict our approach. We help clients obtain winning outcomes.

BodnarMilone LLP B

ODNARMILONE LLP OFFERS A UNIQUE DEP TH OF RESOURCES and experience in marital dissolution and post-divorce matters. Indeed, seven at torneys at the eight-at torney firm were recognized by Best Law yers® for 2021, including several at torneys who are AV Preeminent rated by Mar tindale -Hubbell. Many are also Fellows of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and past Chairs of the Family L aw Sections of the New York State Bar Association and Westchester County Bar Association and current members of their Executive Commit tees, as well as designated as Super Law yers and included in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Law and Who’s Who in the World. T he i s sue s e nc omp as s e d w i t hin matrimonial and family practice reflect

the most fundamental of concerns, namely peoples’ children, their homes, their life savings, possibly business interests or professional practices, and their financial futures. BodnarMilone’s practice is devoted to working closely with its clients to resolve these issues, preferably through negotiated settlement or Collaborative Divorce, if possible—though when that is not possible, through vigorous and def t litigation. BodnarMilone is highly regarded by the Bench and Bar alike for its level of expertise and professionalism, attention to detail, integrity, and responsiveness. These qualities are brought to bear in the firm’s representation of each client. The firm serves not only as an advocate for its clients, but also as a counselor at law for them. Clients are counseled as to the “bigger picture” so they can

better understand the ramifications of the different options or actions and thereby make better, more informed choices and avoid unintended consequences which might be borne of emotion-based decision-making. “Our experience allows us to help our clients develop and achieve realistic goals, translating their concerns into concrete solutions,” notes Lydia Milone, who has been practicing law for over three decades. “By approaching each case with ingenuity and integrity, we’ve been able to make a real difference in the lives of people.” “BodnarMilone shepherds its clients through both marital dissolution and post-divorce matters, working with them to achieve results tailored to their unique situations,” says Peter Bodnar, who brings more than 45 years of experience to his practice.
