Keep this helpful tip in mind regarding your child custody plan

When New Jersey parents get divorced, they no doubt understand that their decisions are going to have a significant impact on their children's lives. Thankfully, there are typically many community resources available to help parents and children cope with divorce and successfully adapt to new lifestyles. Sometimes, parents may unwittingly impede the process, especially if they use their children as messengers regarding child custody issues because they don't want to talk to each other.

TV star Thomas Ravenel petitions court for sole child custody

As many New Jersey parents know, resolving disputes over how best to care for children when parents divorce or parents who were never married to each other break off their relationships can be quite challenging. If one or both parents accuse the other of being unfit, the court must take time to investigate the matter and determine a course of action in the best interests of the children involved. A star of TV show Southern Charm, Thomas Ravenel, is currently fighting for sole child custody against the mother of his two children, whom he has accused of illegally buying, selling and using prescription drugs.

Child custody: What happens if parents live in different states?

New Jersey parents often have to resolve a lot of issues concerning their children when they decide they no longer want to remain married to each other. In all states, the court has the final say regarding child custody, visitation or support issues. However, complications can arise if parents reside in different states.

Brad Pitt to share child custody with Angelina Jolie

Many New Jersey parents can relate to situations where they strongly disagree with their former spouses regarding matters that concern their children. When the main issue at hand is child custody, it can be difficult to resolve the issues, especially if parents are trying to work things out on their own. It is no secret that Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been entangled in a custody battle for several years now.  

Child custody should always focus on children's best interests

When New Jersey parents seek the court's intervention to make decisions regarding their children, they can assume the court will base its rulings on what is or isn't in the best interest of the children. When parents disagree, the court considers various factors and makes decisions on a case-by-case basis. Television star Vanessa Marcil recently spoke about her own child custody dispute with her now 16-year-old son's biological father and made some points that other parents may want to keep in mind when facing similar problems.

Any New Jersey parent who is currently facing co-parenting problems will want to carefully research state laws before taking any type of action in court. Child custody laws vary by state and can bear significant impact on a parent's decisions as far as how to address a particular legal matter. There is also a difference between legal custody of a child and physical custody; a concerned parent will want to seek clarification for better understanding in order to know where he or she might stand in the eyes of the court in a given situation.

Following a divorce, New Jersey parents often have court orders in place regarding custody of their children. In such circumstances, both parents must adhere to the order, unless and until the court grants a modification. If a parent believes he or she has a legitimate reason, a request to change the order may be submitted to the court. Actor Damon Wayans Jr. recently asked the court for more parenting time.  

Worried about a child custody situation?

Even if you are willing and determined to settle your divorce in as amicable a manner as possible, there is little to nothing you can do about another person's behavior. Especially where child custody is concerned, if you and your spouse disagree about certain issues, it can definitely cause a delay toward your settlement. If your situation becomes contentious, you may feel the need to reach out for support rather than going it alone in a New Jersey family law court.  

Authorities issue public alert in child custody situation

Many New Jersey parents encounter challenges when disagreements occur between them regarding where their children should reside if parents are no longer married or never were to start. Most child custody situations are resolvable and do not lead to violence of any kind. However, some disputes get out of hand and local authorities, and perhaps even federal investigators, may be called in to rectify those situations.
