Palimony Agreements

Today, the New Jersey Supreme Court of New Jersey issued a decision holding that the 2010 Amendment to the Statute of Frauds, N.J.S.A. 25:1-5(h) does not render oral palimony agreements that predate it unenforceable because the Legislature did not intend the Amendment to apply retroactively.  This important decision gives new life to parties who have entered into oral palimony agreements prior to 2010.
