When New Jersey judges deny child custody to parents, they base their decisions on the best interests of the children. Although the loss of child custody naturally distresses parents, it does not have to be the final word on the subject. A parent can take action and potentially regain custody.
Child support is a complex and contentious issue. No parent wants to write a check each month in lieu of spending time with his or her child. For parents who do not have primary custody, though, this is often the sacrifice that they must make. If you are in this situation, you may be wondering how your income, assets and wealth will ultimately determine the amount of child support the court orders you to pay.
New Jersey parents who decide to divorce may face some special challenges. Because the parents are still connected through their children despite their differences and relationship problems, each parent will still need to maintain a connection with the other. Successful co-parenting is important to help the children move on from the divorce and still feel supported by both parents. When the parents are committed to working together in the interests of the children, the divorce process may be less high-conflict and the kids will feel more secure with both of their parents.
