Need help with a Child Custody or Support Problem in New Jersey?Child Custody and Child Support in New Jersey

There is nothing more complicated about separation or divorce than the welfare and support of your children. It is essential that you have Eatontown child custody lawyers to help you understand how New Jersey courts make decisions related to parenting including legal custody, physical custody and visitation arrangements.

In New Jersey, legal custody refers to who has the authority to make major decisions regarding your child’s upbringing. Though this is a critical decision, legal custody does not dictate how much time you spend with your child. Physical custody, however, refers to where your child will live and with which parent your child will reside. Visitation determines how and when a parent without physical custody sees a child.

For many, this is more complicated than any other question related to divorce. Whether during negotiation or litigation, at Andres Mejer & Associates, we are committed to helping you determine the best interests of your child. Many couples successfully achieve a co-parenting arrangement by focusing on the well-being of their children. This is your ideal goal. This amicable arrangement puts a focus on your children’s needs and subsequently includes a collaborative approach to parenting.

Your parenting plan will likely include child visitation for the parent who does not have primary custody to spend meaningful time with the child. In almost all custody and divorce cases involving children, the judge will give the parent who does not have physical custody child visitation.

If there is a history of child abuse or neglect, you can request supervised visitation. In rare cases, a court may grant “no visitation.” If you worry about your child’s health or safety, be sure to talk to your Eatontown child custody lawyers as soon as possible about these critical issues.
