NJ Custody Attorney

Navigating child custody is often the most stressful part of a divorce. Our lawyers help you understand the law when it comes to physical custody and will ensure you make the best decisions for your family. Physical custody is just that: actual custody of the child. Traditionally, one parent has primary physical custody of the child (which means that parent has the child for a majority of the time), with the other parent having parenting time with the children (i.e. every other weekend). It’s becoming more common, however, for parents to share physical custody, meaning they divide time with the child relatively equally so long as that schedule is in the child’s best interests. We work with our clients to determine what is best for the children and to minimize conflict during this taxing process.
