Child custody arrangements in New Jersey

The New Jersey Courts provide an overview of different types of child custody arrangements in this state. Sometimes, courts award joint legal custody, in which both parents can access their child’s information. On the other hand, sole legal custody grants one parent the right to make important decisions for a child.

Sometimes, children live with each parent equally through shared residential custody. In other cases, a parent has primary residential custody, in which their child lives with them more than the other parent.

Addressing concerns over child custody

Whether you worry about the outcome of a bitter child custody dispute or have not had the ability to see your child due to custody violations, it is crucial to understand your rights and options. Regardless of the details surrounding your child custody case, you have to stay focused on your child’s well-being.
