Russell I. Marnell Discusses Inclusion, Diversity and Elimination of Bias in Family Law, Publishes Article on “Double Dipping”

EAST MEADOW, NEW YORK — Russell I. Marnell, of The Law Offices of Russell I. Marnell, P.C., was a presenter in a program entitled “Issues of Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias Related to the Practice of New York Family Law” during a New York Family Law Inn of Court meeting, which took place on April 17 at the Nassau County Bar Association in Mineola.

 

Mr. Marnell discussed what implicit bias is, how it affects people generally, and, more specifically, how it can affect diverse professionals in the field of family law. The program also outlined what can be done to combat implicit bias and its effects.

 

In addition, Mr. Marnell published an article, “‘Double Dipping’ Considerations in New York Divorce,” which appeared in the May 2019 issue of Nassau Lawyer. In the article, Mr. Marnell wrote that, in double dipping, the income stream is counted twice: once for asset distribution, another for determining alimony payments. If a business owner is involved in a divorce case, and is the sole employee, the court may deem the business as a marital asset and may determine maintenance based on the income generated by the business. However, if the business employs other people, the court cannot subject the business to double dipping.
