Try this code

jQuery.validator.addMethod("greaterThanToday",function(value) {
        var isValid = value.match(/^\d{2}\/\d{2}\/\d{4}$/);
            var datetime = value;
            var date = new Date();
            var parts = datetime.split('/');
            var day = parseInt(parts[0]);
            var month = parseInt(parts[1])-1;
            var year = parseInt(parts[2]);
            var maxyear = date.getFullYear()+1;
            var maxDay = date.getDate();
            var maxMonth = date.getMonth();
            var enteredDate = new Date(year, month, day);
            var maxDate = new Date(maxyear, maxMonth, maxDay);
            if (enteredDate <= maxDate) {
              isValid = true;
              isValid =  false;
        return isValid;
    }, "Not a valid date");

    submitHandler: function(form) {
        return false;
