How do you create a parenting plan?

If you and your spouse decide to divorce, it may be time-consuming to reach an agreement on child custody. There are several essential issues that you may need to decide on, including where the child will live and how visitations will work. In New Jersey, you may be able to settle custody issues with minimal court time if you and your spouse are able to agree to terms on your own. If that is not a possibility, you may need to file a custody complaint in court to establish or modify a custody order. In either case, one of the key elements of a custody agreement is a parenting plan.

Moving to another state after your divorce

For many people, the end of their marriage symbolizes a fresh start and a time full of opportunity. The divorce process can be tough, not only from a financial angle but emotionally as well. However, many people are able to move beyond these hurdles and some are able to pursue new opportunities and change their lives for the better. For example, splitting up with a spouse may make it easier for someone to move to another state, which could offer a better quality of life as well as a more favorable job market and business opportunities. However, it is important to make sure that all bases are covered, especially if you have kids.

Child custody and Halloween

For parents, child custody issues can be one of the more challenging aspects of family law. These cases often involve strong emotions and may also lead to a great deal of stress. After all, the well-being of a child is more important than other divorce issues. Parents face various challenges due to custody issues, especially during holidays. Moreover, some holidays, such as Halloween, can be especially tricky.

Discussing a custody dispute with kids

For parents, family law can be a tough subject. From mentioning the idea of a divorce to your children to adjusting to changes following a custody ruling, there are many ways in which family law can be tricky. Custody disputes can be particularly challenging, and many parents may have an even harder time dealing with these issues during the back-to-school season. However, it is crucial to make sure that you do all you can to help your child with this transition.

Managing your emotions during a dispute over custody

We have covered many different concerns related to child custody cases, such as the potential impact a dispute may have on a child. However, there are far more issues to consider if you are preparing for divorce, are in the middle of ending your marriage, or have already divorced and are facing custody-related challenges. For example, the emotional toll of a custody dispute may be especially tough for a variety of reasons and it is crucial to make sure that you handle these feelings appropriately. Unfortunately, some parents have allowed their emotions to get the best of them and adversely affect their case.

Child custody: The difference the right lawyer can make

Many people expect a breakup to go hand in hand with stress and emotional turmoil. While this is often true in divorce cases, especially when it comes to child custody, it does not have to be the case. By obtaining the help of the right New Jersey family law lawyer for a particular case, the process can go a lot smoother.  

Child custody -- acting in the best interest of the child

For many parents, their children are what makes their world go around. This is why most parents will confirm that they do not want their children to get caught up in the whole process of divorce. The ideal solution when it comes to child custody negotiations is that all parties are focused on ensuring the best interests of the children involved.  

Child custody -- litigation as a last resort

Negotiation is often one of the best ways for parties to reach a mutually agreeable resolution to a problem. This is especially true in child custody issues. Most parents in the midst of a divorce dread the possibility of litigation to decide issues surrounding the custody of the children born from the marriage.

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!

The basics of child custody in New Jersey

Most, if not all, parents want what is best for their children. The same holds true for parents involved in divorce proceedings, and that is why understanding child custody matters are so important.
