New Jersey Child Custody Lawyer
For couples with children, the future care and provisions for the children are a focal point of the divorce proceedings. At the Law Offices of James C. DeZao, our attorneys are committed to advocating for the preservation of the relationship you have with your child and to ensure he or she is provided the support needed.
In New Jersey, decisions about child custody and parenting time must be based on a child’s best interests. This is why no one form of custody is given preference over another. All families are different, and custody arrangements reflect this. What your custody arrangement ultimately looks like will be based on many factors, such as each parent’s pre-existing relationship with the child, parent work schedules, and your child’s psychological needs, as well as any special or medical needs. Custody laws in New Jersey are gender neutral, giving both parents equal footing in the eyes of the law.
