Establishing Child Custody & Parenting Time During a Divorce or Separation in New Jersey
While divorces and separations are different legal procedures, the process of establishing child custody and parenting time is largely the same regardless of whether you and your children’s other parent are married. Parents have the ability to establish mutually agreeable terms if they are both willing to do so; and, if an agreement is not in the cards, parents can seek a formal resolution in New Jersey state court.
In all child custody and parenting time matters, the sole focus is on protecting the best interests of the children involved. The New Jersey Statutes outline several “best interests factors” that must be considered when establishing child custody and parenting time during a divorce or separation. Some examples of these factors include:
- The interaction and relationship of the child with its parents and siblings
- The preference of the child when of sufficient age and capacity to reason to form an intelligent decision
- The needs of the child
- The stability of the home environment offered
- The quality and continuity of the child’s education
- The geographical proximity of the parent’s homes
- The parents’ employment responsibilities
A New Jersey child custody lawyer at Zemsky Family Law is skilled in helping parents negotiate child custody rights and parenting time schedules that meet their needs while also serving their children’s best interests. When you choose our firm, we will get to know you personally. We will develop a custom-tailored plan focused on protecting your relationship with your children, considering the specific circumstances involved.
