New York Parental Alienation Lawyers

New York Parental Alienation Lawyers

There are a number of ways to combat parental alienation in New York.  One of them is to cut off child support to the other parent.  New York requires that a parent support a child until age 21 pursuant to Family Ct Act § 413 [1] [a].  However, if you can prove that your  right of reasonable access to the child has been unjustifiably frustrated by the custodial parent, child support payments can be suspended. Helpful cases include Matter of Crouse v Crouse, 53 AD3d 750, 751 [2008];  Matter of Dobies v Brefka, 83 AD3d 1148, 1152 [2011] and Usack v Usack, 17 AD3d 736, 737-738 [2005]). To win your case, you are required to show that the other parent intentionally orchestrated and encouraged the estrangement of you  from the children or that they actively interfered with or deliberately frustrated your  visitation rights.  Matter of Crouse v Crouse, 53 AD3d at 752, quoting Usack v Usack, 17 AD3d at 739.

Of course, there are many other ways to fight back against parental alienation.  To discuss all of your rights and options, call our team of tough, smart New York attorneys at 1-855-9-JEFLAW or visit our parental alienation website

Fare Evasion 32:1-146.8

Fare Evasion Charges 32:1-146.8

A charge of fare evasion for a violation often surprises many people because it can lead to jail time.  Specifically, subsection 4 of this regulation states:

(4) No person not authorized by PATH shall be permitted in or upon any car or other rolling stock or station or platform or parking facility within the Hudson Tubes or Hudson Tubes extensions, except upon payment in full of such fares, fees and other charges as may from time to time be prescribed by PATH. No person shall refuse to pay or evade or attempt to evade the payment in full of such fares, fees and other charges.

Thus, if you sneak onto a PATH train or otherwise evade any other PATH fare, you are in violation of this statute.  These violations are often seen in Newark, Jersey City and Hoboken.  Pursuant to 32:1-146.9, violators are subject to jail time up to 30 days in jail.  While this may seem serious, not paying for a fare is similar to theft which would subject you to six months in jail.

If you are facing a charge for fare evasion for violating 32:1-146.8 in any court in New Jersey, call our team of tough, smart attorneys 24/7 at 1-855-9-JEFLAW.

N.J.A.C. 4A:2-2.3(a)(4) Chronic or excessive absenteeism or lateness Defense Lawyers

N.J.A.C. 4A:2-2.3(a)(4) Chronic or excessive absenteeism or lateness Defense Lawyers

N.J.A.C. 4A:2-2.3(a)(4) subjects an employee to discipline for Chronic or excessive absenteeism or lateness. There are a number of defenses here. The first is to determine if any of the absences are excused or should have been excused. While that may not always be a total defense, the defense attorney needs to paint a picture of what is really going on here. There is a big difference between an employee suffering a medical condition and an employee that just doesn’t show up to work. Other defenses include the defense showing that the absences did not require the employer to reschedule employees or pay other employees overtime. Yet another defense is to argue that progressive discipline was not used. If the employee was not counsled or disciplined before for the same thing, this would go a long way to helping the defense achieve a great result for the client.
