New Jersey Child Custody
In New Jersey divorce law, custody of children may be granted to either parent, based on the best interests of the child. If you and your spouse cannot agree on child custody outside of court, then the court will make a decision for you. The court will look at many factors in determining the matter, including such factors as you and your spouse's ability to cooperate and communicate in matters relating to your children, your willingness to accept custody, any history of failing to cooperate with parenting time schedules and agreements, any history of domestic violence, the needs of the children, how stable the home being offered may be, the fitness of the parents, the children's preference if they are old enough to make an intelligent decision, the geographic proximities of the parents' homes, the parents' employment, the relationships that each child has with the parents and with his or her siblings, and other relevant factors.
