How is Child Custody Determined in NJ?
There are always a number of different factors involved when a judge makes
a decision on a child custody case. For the most part, the court aims
to do whatever is right for the child or children in question. There are
two main custody arrangements which may be offered, which are joint custody
and sole custody. When you and your spouse are willing to agree and work
collaboratively, there are a number of different options you can explore
rather than taking the matter to court. In the case that parents do not
agree, there are also options such as co-parent counseling, custody mediation,
and guardian ad litem.
The court may assess the following factors when making a decision about
- The child's age
- The child's gender
- The child's physical health
- The child's mental health
- The child's education
- Each spouse's lifestyle
- Each spouse's schedule
- Each spouse's health
- The child's relationships with each spouse
- Each spouse's financial security
