Fake ID Charge in Ocean Township (Waretown)

Many times people who are not of legal age attempt to use fake ID’s in order to buy alcohol, tobacco, and to get into popular bars and clubs.  A fake ID can be a falsified driver’s license, birth certificate or other falsified government document.  If you are caught in possession of or in the process of using a fake ID, you can be charged with a disorderly persons offense or an indictable offense, depending on the circumstances.  If you are using the fake ID only for your own benefit, then it is more likely that you will be charged with the less serious disorderly persons offense.  Under this scenario, you could face jail time, a $1,000 fine, and be required to perform community service.  However, if you tamper with any public record, the penalties can follow those of the more serious indictable offenses of the 3rd or 4th degree.  Those penalties could include a possible prison sentence, higher fines, probation and other severe penalties.

In addition to being charged for having the fake ID, if the underage person is caught consuming alcohol, they may also be subjected to an underage drinking violation.  A conviction by the Ocean Township Municipal Court for the underage drinking offense will result in a fine of no less than $500.  If you are facing an underage drinking or a fake ID charge, contact Villani & DeLuca today for a free consultation by calling 732-965-3350.

Collaborative Divorce Option in Waretown, NJ

A traditional divorce is often a highly emotional and antagonistic process.  A collaborative divorce, by contrast, is a relatively new way to approach the dissolution of a marriage and one which is less combative.  A collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial process that is settled outside of court with the help of lawyers and, on occasion, other family professionals if they are needed.  In situations where the parties going through a divorce are able to communicate and deal with each other in a positive manner, the collaborative law process may be the best option available to them to effectuate their divorce.

A collaborative divorce offers parties some important advantages, the most significant of which is that the couple themselves determine the terms of the divorce rather than a judge.  Therefore, the parties have much more control and can avoid the uncertain outcome of a court proceeding.  The collaborative divorce proceedings also typically cost less than a traditional divorce.  Finally, the collaborative divorce proceedings remain private unlike in a divorce in a court.  If you are getting divorced in the Ocean Township area, the experienced family law attorneys at Villani & DeLuca can help protect your rights and interests.  Contact our team of Ocean Township divorce lawyers today for a free consultation by calling 732-965-3350.
