Gormley v. Gormley

The defendant in a divorce action was determined to be disabled by the Social Security Administration. Relying on Gilligan v. Gilligan, 428 N.J. Super. 69 (Ch. Div. 2012) held that the SSA’s determination alone as insufficient to prove a disability at trial. The Appellate Division abrogated Gilligan to the extent that it conflicts with Golian v. Golian, 344 N.J. Super. 337 (App. Div. 2001), wherein the Appellate Division held that the SSA’s determination that a person is disabled was prima facie evidence of the disability.
