Domestic violence cases are unique because of their competing issues. The legal system weighs a number of values for every case: fairness, due process, expeditiousness, and potential impact on society are just a few. Domestic violence cases usually involve someone in imminent or current danger or a child's ability to see both of his/her parents, meaning that the courts often must focus on speed over the other values, to prevent further physical or emotional harm. But speed should not come at the cost of other concerns and the courts must find a way to balance all of them together.
Courts have long recognized the legitimacy of non-traditional and unique family situations. When a child is born out of wedlock, courts have extended the rights and privileges of a child-parent relationship in spite of the lack of a formal marriage. In In the Matter of the Estate of Castellano, the court decided whether a child born out of wedlock could be considered a child of the man his mother was married to at the time of his birth to exclude him from inheriting from his biological father. This somewhat unorthodox case offers a variation on a common issue.
As divorce rates continue to climb in America, family courts across the country must often decide custody battles. Custody arrangements go from commonplace to creative. Having a child spend every other weekend at one parent's home, and the rest of the time with another parent, was routine. Now nearly 20 states are considering laws that create an automatic legal presumption of joint custody. New Jersey joins these states with the proposal of Bill A-1091 (the "Bill"), primarily sponsored by Republican Assemblyman Peterson, with broad bipartisan support.
When you have multiple devices that are connected through a cloud-based server, they allow you to access everything on that server, through any of your devices. This is generally the reason most people choose to have access to a cloud-based server to begin with - you will always have the document you need.
