There are two parts to custody of children in New Jersey: legal and physical. Legal custody refers to the decision-making right and responsibility regarding substantive issues like education, religion, and non-emergency medical care. Physical custody refers to the actual care and control of the children-where the child is, and who that child is with and for what periods of time. Legal and physical custody can be sole or joint.
The best interests of the child or children are the primary factors in determining the parties’ custody arrangement. Visitation or parenting time is the schedule agreed upon by the parties, or imposed by the court, by which the parties coordinate their respective time with their children. The parties will need to learn how to share the children in a new Post-divorce environment. The divorce and custody attorneys here headed by Bruce K.
