Child custody: Securing the child's best interests

Most people want what is best for their children and will do a lot to ensure that this happens. When a couple decides to part ways, the children are often caught in the middle.  The fact is that in many divorces, child custody and support are among the more difficult issues to deal with. Let's be honest - there is a lot at stake!

Our New Jersey firm has had ample experience in resolving these sensitive matters, helping to make sure that the children are not caught in the middle. We can assist in helping parties meet in the middle and find solutions. It is important for parents to realize that there are a variety of options available to ensure the protection of their children's best interests as well as the parents' rights.

We believe that testimonies of experts, like psychiatrists and psychologists, can play an integral role in establishing a case when asking to become the custodial parent. While it is better to reach an amicable agreement, it is sometimes necessary to litigate. In such instances we endeavor to ensure that all relevant details and facts are made known to the court.

When it comes to child support there are clear legal guidelines in New Jersey, but it is also important that the correct numbers are used in the relevant formulas. Accurate calculations can only be obtained if the correct information on income and expenses are used. The aim should be to reach a fair and even-handed outcome.

Our New Jersey firm can offer the expertise required to ensure an equitable outcome for all concerned in child custody matters. While negotiations are often the best way, we will not hesitate to litigate if the need arises. For more information, see our child custody page.
