I see a number of things that could go awry. Firstly, establishing a click handler on a div around the submit button for the form in order to do validation is just, well, rather odd.

Step 1 to cleanup is to get rid of that click handler and replace it with a submit handler for the form. That's the appropriate place to do validation.

And please, next time you post your code, please fix up the indentation properly. Badly indented code is very hard to read.

P.S. Why aren't you using the Validation Plugin rather than rolling your own?
