Judge issues orders in child custody fight cross multiple states

A 4-year-old boy's parents have been battling it out in court regarding which one of them should have custody of him. The father was granted child custody some time ago, following the mother's admission that she had used methamphetamine drugs. She was sentenced to probation. The judge in charge of the case recently issued orders that demand the child's immediate return to the state in question, a situation to which some parents in New Jersey may relate.

Child custody situation involves serious allegations

Many New Jersey parents have been fortunate enough to be able to negotiate fair and satisfactory settlements in divorce -- many, but not all. Some, in fact, encounter significant obstacles, especially where child custody is concerned, sometimes leading to court battles. Nicole Curtis, a star on the show "Rehab Addict," understands that type of contention, as she is currently going through a similar situation with the father of her 2-year-old son.  

Child custody and holidays: New Jersey parents can avoid stress

When a New Jersey couple with children decide to divorce, they usually expect to have to resolve various issues regarding co-parenting as it will relate to their new lifestyle. If the spouses involved get along fairly well, negotiations for parenting plans may be rather painless, although parents may still run into obstacles down the line when unforeseen complications arise. Many divorced parents have love/hate relationships with holidays, for special occasions seem to increase the risk for child custody problems. 

Filing for child custody? Keep this in mind

There are many issues that can negatively or positively impact court proceedings when parents disagree about child-related matters either in divorce or as single parents. Child custody is a main concern for many New Jersey moms and dads. Anyone currently preparing to negotiate or litigate custody issues will want to consider several factors ahead of time.  

Jolie ordered to allow Pitt more parenting time

Many New Jersey readers are aware that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have faced off, several times, in court regarding custody and visitation for their six children. In fact, since the former couple divorced, it seems they have been unsuccessful at every turn in trying to resolve their parenting time disputes. The two were recently back in court, which resulted in a new ruling that Jolie must allow Pitt to see and/or communicate with his children without restriction.  

Non-biological father fighting for child custody of infant

A man in another state had been eagerly awaiting the birth of his child. However, during what should have been a very happy time for him, his wife gave him devastating news -- she informed him that he was not the baby's biological father. Situations like this have occurred in New Jersey, where child custody battles ensue involving estrange parents or parents whose paternity is questioned.

Complicated child custody situation crosses borders

A 34-year-old expectant mother was reportedly ecstatic to win a visa lottery, allowing her to legally enter the United States. The woman's cousin says it was her dream to build a life here for her children. Sadly, soon after her arrival in the U.S., the woman died during childbirth. The situation has developed into a child custody problem that has crossed international borders. New Jersey residents facing similar problems may want to follow this case. 

Mother says child custody laws biased against disabled parents

There are many New Jersey parents who suffer from temporary or permanent disabilities. Each situation is unique and the severity of any disability varies according to individual circumstances. A woman in another state is lobbying for changes in child custody laws that she believes are biased against disabled parents.

5-year child custody battle may finally be coming to a close

Many New Jersey parents face disagreements with former spouses or others regarding child-related matters. When the central focus is child custody, serious problems can arise, especially if someone relocates a child without going through appropriate channels of approval. One dad has been fighting for five years to get his son back, and just recently the tides seem to have turned in his favor.

Does parenting time have to be equally divided in divorce?

Divorce is challenging enough for couples who do not have children. It may be more so for parents. There are typically many issues that must be resolved, one of which is parenting time. New Jersey family courts generally believes children should have as much time with each parent as possible, but that doesn't always mean the time must be split equally.
