Child custody is the first thing couples with children think about when they get separated. Whether you are married or not, child custody laws in NJ are like those in other states, but there are a few differences that need to be taken into consideration before filing for custody of a child.
What is Legal Custody?
What is Physical Custody?
Is NJ a 50/50 State?
The Courts of NJ generally tend to favor joint legal and joint physical custody arrangements between both parents. The courts will determine what is in the best interest of the child and the child’s wellbeing.
What is an Unfit parent?
A court may deem a parent unfit in the following circumstances:
- history of alcohol or drug use
- history of domestic violence
- have demonstrated no interest in caring for or the wellbeing of the child.
Other conditions that may contribute to deviating from a joint legal or physical custody arrangement:
- One parent is the primary caretaker for the majority of the child’s life
