How problems with addiction could affect child custody

Marriages can break down for any number of reasons. For some New Jersey residents, a spouse's alcohol or drug problems may prove too much to cope with, especially when children are involved. For the parent with such problems, this will have a serious impact on the issue of child custody.

Shared parenting time: A positive move for Women's Equality Day

The traditional gender roles of yesteryear have been turned on their heads more than once in recent times. When it comes to bringing up their children, New Jersey parents have many options available to them. The benefits of quality parenting time can enhance an individual's relationship with his or her children and may also allow the parents to find fulfilment as individuals.

How can one avoid missing out on parenting time from a distance?

Long distance relationships can be difficult to maintain for even the most devoted of people. When a parent has to try to maintain parenting time with his or her child from afar, however, it can be even more upsetting. Some New Jersey residents may be familiar with such arrangements, which can arise for a number of reasons.

Avoid child custody stress by sharing information

Getting divorced may ease the pressure of spousal responsibilities, but it usually increases parental pressures if there are children involved. This mainly -- but not only -- applies when parents share child custody, because both parents have to do right by the other one to avoid contention. After the divorce, most New Jersey parents want to spare their children further trauma by maintaining an amicable relationship with each other. To achieve this, it helps to address even seemingly insignificant issues in the parenting plan and make sure it is included in the custody order.

Equal parenting time is in the best interest of the children

Over the years, there have been many theories involving the relationship between children and their parents. It was once believed that, when parents divorced, the children needed their mothers more than their fathers. Among New Jersey residents these days, there is a more balanced view toward parenting time.

Quality parenting time with both parents benefits everyone

When a marriage ends, it is often the children who suffer the most. Many non-custodial parents living in New Jersey will be familiar with the difficulties in arranging parenting time concerning their children. Seeing one's child for only brief periods can be painful and even infringe upon efforts to nurture the relationship. In contrast, recent studies have shown that parenting time in the form of overnight visits can be of greater benefit to the parent-child bond in a number of ways.

3 things mothers should know about custody mediation

Now that you know for certain that your marriage is over, you might be dreading having to deal with child custody issues.

This process involves you and your ex-husband working together to create the child custody agreement.

Get answers to child custody questions before making decisions

When New Jersey parents decide to end their marriages, their greatest concern is often how it will affect their children. Child custody issues can be complex and frustrating, and parents undoubtedly have questions. Friends, other family members and Hollywood movies can only give their opinions and impressions of how it really works. In order to feel comfortable and come to an agreement that works best for a family, some basic questions need to be answered first.

Designing a child custody agreement that works post-divorce

New Jersey parents who are in the midst of a divorce often struggle with how to lessen the impact of their split on the children. A carefully crafted child custody agreement can help in doing just that. The agreements made between the parents during such a challenging time can form a foundation upon which the parents can build a civil, if not amicable, future as they continue to raise their children together despite the end of the marital relationship.
