Beachwood Child Custody Attorneys

At the heart of many divorce disputes in Beachwood is that of child custody. It can be a very emotional time for parents, grandparents, or other interested parties seeking to gain custodial rights. At the end of the day, Family Courts in New Jersey consider the best interests of the child or children involved to come up with the best arrangement possible.

Regarding custody, New Jersey legislators believe it is the best policy to have both parents share the rights and responsibilities involved in child rearing. Of course, the courts will consider many different factors in coming up with an as amicable solution as possible with the best interests of the child or children in mind.

The child custody factors that a court may consider, in its discretion, include but are not limited to: the parents’ ability to communicate and cooperate in matters involving their child(ren); the child’s preference, if the child is of an age where he or she can make that decision; any job-related responsibilities of the parents; the number of children involved; etc. In addition, it is important to note that, while a parent may be deemed unfit, it must be shown that that particular parent’s conduct has a substantial effect on the child involved.
