Almost all New Jersey parents want what’s best for their children. The problem, however, is that parents don’t always agree on how to do this. And when parents are separated or divorced, coming to an agreement on raising the children may be difficult or impossible for the parties to do on their own.
A few weeks ago, we told you about the factors that New Jersey courts take into account when they are making decisions regarding child custody. Not only will the court seek to make decisions in the best interest of the child, the court has guidelines to follow in making this determination. The two parties each have the opportunity to make arguments to the court, and the court will seek to impose a solution that will serve the child’s best interests.
Many parents have found that effective advocacy can be critical to communicating their position to the court. The lawyers at Diamond & Diamond, P.A. can assist parents grappling with creating a parenting plan. In addition to advocacy before a court or other decision-making body, we also have experience with mediating and arbitrating child custody disputes. Collectively, we have over a half-century’s worth of experience helping clients with family law matters.
Parenting plans are often detailed documents that lay out each parent’s rights and responsibilities, sometimes down to the hour. It is a big help if parents have skilled legal representation looking out for their interests. We have helped many parents with child custody and other family law matters.
