Worried about child custody problems in divorce?

Keeping your children's best interests in mind is no doubt one of your highest priorities as you prepare to negotiate a settlement for divorce in a New Jersey court. The judge presiding over your case will likely take numerous factors into consideration when ruling on child custody, support and visitation issues. If you and your former spouse are like-minded regarding such matters, chances are things will run smoothly; if not, you may have to aggressively protect your right as a new plan for parenting time and other related matters is developed.

While you will no longer be married to the same person, you will still have a lifetime of interaction with your co-parent because you have children together. It is not uncommon for legal problems to arise in such circumstances, especially if a former spouse is intentionally trying to impede a parent/child relationship or refuses to adhere to an existing court order. To solidify a personalized agreement and to swiftly rectify any problems that occur down the line, it is helpful to act alongside experienced family law representation.

You may have questions regarding what you should do if the other parent doesn't show up for visits or doesn't return your children to you at the appointed time and place. You may also feel stressed if child support payments are not arriving on time. These and other issues can negatively affect your and your children's ability to adapt to your new lifestyle.

Divorce is not easy but it doesn't necessarily have to ruin lives. At Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., our experienced team of attorneys is well-versed in New Jersey child custody and child support guidelines. We are committed to acting on your behalf to protect your rights and your children's best interests in all matters related to your divorce.
