In any child-related legal matter, New Jersey courts make decisions and issue orders based on the best interests of the child. Parents’ views of what that means within their families often differ significantly. While every effort should be made to reach an amicable settlement regarding physical custody, legal custody and visitation/parenting time; having an experienced litigator on your side is essential for protection of your child custody rights and relationships.
Many attorneys do not want to handle cases involving child custody because of the difficult emotional and legal issues. These matters often involve lengthy litigation with multiple competing expert witnesses on each side. Our attorneys have many decades of experience helping people resolve complex child custody and visitation concerns.
Our approach is to first conduct a thorough analysis of your situation, talking to you about your individual circumstances (work schedule, support network, etc.), children’s needs (school, friends, etc.), family dynamics and other relevant factors. We also bring in other qualified professionals to offer guidance and support in advocating for an appropriate custody and visitation agreement.
We are dedicated to achieving divorce outcomes that promote continued close relationships with both parents whenever possible, in full view of mothers’ and fathers’ career obligations and other priorities. However, we actively prepare for trial in the event litigation becomes necessary.
Our attorneys consistently provide the personal, focused attention that concerned parents need in order to make confident decisions and accomplish their most important goals.
