Skills and experience can be crucial in a child custody case

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.

For child custody, what are the best interests of the child?

Ideally, when a couple decides to separate or divorce, they will be able to agree on matters of child custody. In the real world, this doesn't always happen, however. A few weeks ago, we mentioned that courts make child custody decisions based on the best interests of the child. Each state has its own standards for guiding judges in making this determination. This blog post will describe the factors that New Jersey judges often use to determine the best interests of the child for child custody purposes.

Some basic information about child custody

Child custody is among the most contentious issues in many divorce and separation proceedings. People often have strong, passionate feelings about where their children should live, what school they should go to, and how they should be raised. Like other aspects of divorce or separation, child custody decisions are governed by legal standards. Decisions are either made by the parties and approved by the court or made by the court if the parties cannot agree.
