Judge loses job amid child custody dispute

New Jersey residents may be under the common misconception that having a friend in the judicial system can give a party an unfair advantage in court.

New Jersey parents may have found themselves in a situation that put them at odds with the legal system. When it comes to child custody orders, there is no wiggle room for parents that disagree with the orders contents. Child custody orders must be followed whether a parent personally agrees or not. 

Why are children's best interests so important in child custody?

Divorcing parents are often told to stay focused on one thing -- the best interests of their children. Those interests help shape the foundation of child custody agreements. However, New Jersey parents are often expected to immediately understand what those interests are, and they rarely receive guidance on the matter. This can lead to custody agreements that are not necessarily beneficial to the child. 

Schools must be made aware of child custody order details

New Jersey parents who have been through divorce proceedings understand that court orders govern the untangling of their marriage. In addition to separating lives, many parents must sort out the details of court-ordered child custody terms with how they impact their daily lives and interactions with their children. The right family law attorney can assist a parent with understanding the details of court orders and paperwork that schools typically need to honor custody terms while a child is in a school's care.

In New Jersey and elsewhere, raising children is expensive. Children not only require food and shelter, but their fast growth usually requires frequent clothing, shoe school, medical and activity expenses. Single parents may find it difficult to finance a child's needs on their own. Many parents find the family law courts helpful to sort out child support payments and child custody agreements with their child's other parent. The rapper, Offset, has recently been sued for additional child support for his 7-year-old child.

Tennis star's career impacted by difficult child custody dispute

Many first time New Jersey parents often do not realize the strain a newborn can introduce into a relationship.

When couples decide that it is best to separate, difficult decisions have to be made, including child custody.
