How do New Jersey Courts handle child custody cases?
Whether you are getting a divorce or were never married to the father or mother of your child, if there are minor children involved it is important to protect your right as a parent and make sure you have continued access to your child and are able to make decisions on their behalf. New Jersey family law courts use the “best interest of the child” standard when making decisions regarding the child.
Child custody encompasses two aspects: legal custody (or decision making authority) and physical custody (timesharing). Legal custody of the child is the ability of one or both of the parents to make the decisions regarding the child’s education, health, and religion. The courts awards either shared or sole parental responsibility in a custody case. Physical custody, or what the courts refer to as timesharing involves the actual location where the child will reside and the courts strongly favor shared custody arrangement, where the child spends an approximately equal amount of time with each parent. Unless there is evidence that such arrangement would not be in the best interest of the child.
How is child support established in New Jersey?
In the state of New Jersey child support is established based on child support guidelines contained in the New Jersey Statute. These guidelines consider several factors including: Each parent's income, daycare expenses, medical insurance costs, any applicable social security benefits, living arrangements of the children, and any other factors considered relevant by the court.
If you're trying to obtain child support, particularly if the non-custodial parent isn't cooperating, you likely don't have the time or energy to decipher dense legal texts. Contact the Law Office of Arij H. Syed to learn more.
