Moorestown Child Custody & Visitation Lawyer
As difficult as it is to separate from your spouse, nothing can be more difficult, and nothing can be more important, than arrangements made that relate to your children. Ideally, parents can work together, even through and after divorce, toward the best interests of their children.
Unfortunately, there are often legitimate differences of opinion as to what is best for the children. Worse, the conflicts that lead to the divorce often destroy the trust needed by parents to work together regarding their children, and that conflict can even become centered upon the issues of how, and by whom the children should be raised.
When possible, we will assist you in formulating and negotiating custody arrangements that you and the other parent are comfortable with, and help you understand the legal complexities of joint custody, parenting plans, and visitation rights.
We will also assist in developing strategies you may employ to deal with your former spouse to improve your communication as it relates to your child. We recognize, however, that in instances where no agreement can be reached, the dispute will have to be resolved by the Court. In these instances, we work closely with the client, and other professionals (teachers, therapists, etc.) familiar with the child and present the most difficult custody cases before the Family Court.

New Jersey law specifies that reasonable visitation should be granted to the non-custodial parent in almost all circumstances. Generally, parents are free to visit with their children at times that are mutually agreed to by both parents. Unfortunately, some parents’ communication is so poor, or animosity so high, that resolving visitation issues is impossible. In other instances, the conduct of one of the parents is so disruptive that limited or supervised visitation is required to protect a child. The guiding principle of visitation is the best interests of the child.
