Palimony – The Final Word?

The New Jersey Supreme Court has weighed in on the issue of Palimony, holding on September 25, 2014, that agreements for Palimony entered into before the law was amended to require Palimony agreements to be in writing does not apply to agreements entered into before the law was amended in 2010.   The rational for the decision was that the legislature did not intend to retroactively void oral palimony contracts that predated the amendment to the law.   The case, Maeker v. Ross is approved for publication and is available for a short time on New Jersey Courts Online, and should be available soon in the Rutgers Law Library.
