How New Jersey Courts Determine Child Custody And Parenting Time

New Jersey statutes regarding child custody are complex. New Jersey child custody law includes distinctions between joint legal custody and sole legal custody. These issues involve determining who will make the important decisions regarding raising the children. When one parent holds sole legal custody, the court orders may outline parenting time for the noncustodial parent for either unsupervised or supervised time with the child. Similarly, there are elements of the law that involve where the child will live, and how time will be divided through primary or shared residential custody arrangements.

What Happens If A Parent Relocates?

Relocation of a child, either outside a certain radius from your current address in New Jersey or outside the state, is a difficult decision for a parent. It is also an issue that arises frequently during or after a divorce. One parent may seek to move away with a child due to job demands or other reasons. The other parent may claim that the move is only for the convenience of the relocating parent, designed to adversely impact the parenting rights of the objecting parent, or the move will not serve the best interests of the child in some other way.
