Family Court and Your Rights As an Unmarried Couple in New Jersey

Simply because you and the other parent of your child are unmarried does not mean that you do not have child custody rights. As long as paternity has been established, you have rights over your child. You can request to relocate or stop the other parent from leaving the state with your children.

Child support for unmarried couples is similar to married couples as well. Payments are established by a formula set by New Jersey law. For the calculation to be accurate, however, it is important to include all financial assets and obligations. Our child custody lawyers can ensure that all appropriate assets are included in the calculations.

Paternity Issues Involving Unmarried Parents and Child Support/Custody

An unmarried father has no rights to child support or child custody until paternity is properly established. This also means an unmarried mother cannot request support from the alleged father until paternity is established. If you need help with DNA testing, our paternity lawyers will be there for you. We will explain your best options to you and guide you toward achieving your goals.
