How Are Visitation Rights Determined in New Jersey?
In New Jersey, visitation or “parenting time” refers to the time that a non-custodial parent spends with their child. In most divorce cases, parents are encouraged to determine this arrangement on their own. If an agreement cannot be reached, however, the courts have the ability to step in and make a decision on their behalf. Most often, the courts will favor a shared arrangement unless circumstances are present that indicate that a parent is unfit to care for a child. As always, the court’s final decision will be made in alignment with the child’s best interests.
The courts will consider the following when making their decision:
- The parents’ willingness to cooperate
- The presence of abusive behavior
- The child’s desires and relationship with both parents
- Any special needs of the child
- The parents’ financial situations
- The parents’ employment responsibilities
Once a judge has reviewed all of the relevant information and each side has had a chance to present their case, a decision will be issued that carries the enforceability of law. Our firm’s attorneys can examine your unique situation and help you craft a strategy aimed at maximizing your chances of securing a desirable outcome for your situation.
