New Jersey Child Custody Lawyers

Dedicated Family Law Attorneys Help Parents in New Jersey Favorably Resolve Their Child Custody Disputes

When parties decide they no longer wish to live together, it becomes necessary to determine how the parents will work together in raising their children. Parents will need a child custody arrangement that establishes legal and physical custody rights and a parenting time schedule; a child custody arrangement can also set forth how parents will resolve disputes over child-rearing issues in the future. 

The law in New Jersey recognizes the rights of parents to raise their children; courts are happy to step aside when parents can mutually agree on custody and parenting time issues. But the courts are always available to issue decisions to resolve disputes when parents cannot reach a mutually acceptable resolution. 

Your children are the most important people in your life, and you will do whatever it takes to protect them and make them happy.

Frequently Asked Questions about Child Custody in New Jersey

Do courts automatically award custody to the mother?

New Jersey’s custody laws are intended to be enforced in a gender-neutral manner, with custody to be awarded in the best interests of the child. However, we recognize that there are preconceived notions about mothers being the more natural caregiver or nurturer for children. At Team Law, our experienced child custody attorneys can help all parents argue against any outdated views of parenting roles and ensure that both parents have full opportunity to spend time with and participate in raising their children.

What if my family’s custody arrangement is no longer working for myself, my former partner, or for our children?

New Jersey law allows for child custody arrangements to be modified upon a showing of changed circumstances. However, courts will not modify custody arrangements to benefit or serve the convenience of the parents; instead, the overriding factor in every child custody determination is whether a custody arrangement serves the best interests of the child. Nevertheless, a parent’s circumstances may demonstrate to the court that a change in custody arrangements would be in the child’s best interests; for example, changes to the parents’ work schedules that increase or decrease the amount of time that a parent has to spend exercising parenting time.
