Child custody battles governed by complex New Jersey laws

Having to go through court proceedings about your children is something that is hard for any parent to go through. No matter the status of your relationship with your child's other parent, these proceedings can often put your nerves on edge. In New Jersey, the goal of the court is to protect the interest of the children.

As you go through the court proceedings, you should know how all applicable laws will affect your case. You should know how to protect not only your child's rights, but also your rights as a parent. This can often prove to be a complex undertaking simply because of the complexities of the laws governing child custody and child visitation in the state.

The complexity of a case is compounded when there are extenuating circumstances involved in the case. These might include accusations of alcoholism, drug abuse, domestic violence or being an unmarried couple. In each of these instances, there are special considerations that must be taken into account when going through the child custody and visitation proceedings.

No matter where you are in the child custody process, even if you already have a court order and need a modification to that order, you have to work to ensure that the court understands your side of the child custody argument. This can often involve interpreting laws and determining how to apply them to the case. It is vital that the way you interpret and apply laws is valid since your relationship with your child and your child's life are at stake in these proceedings.
