Fathers' Rights in New Jersey

What Are a Father's Rights During Divorce?

In New Jersey, the law is designed to remain gender-neutral. Both parents are assumed to have equal rights with their children under normal divorce circumstances. If you are a father who believes that your rights have been compromised during divorce, speak with an East Brunswick family law attorney from my firm.

At the Law Offices of Ryan E. Gilbert, LLC, I can help you learn about all of your legal options and fight for your rights as a father. As you navigate the divorce process, you may face issues regarding child custody, child support and visitation. Even after the divorce is concluded, you may have valid concerns regarding parental alienation.

Whatever type of legal matter you're facing, I can discuss your best options with you. Call my firm at (866) 760-6430 today!

What Are My Rights as a Father?

In many circumstances, it is seen as the best interest of the child to maintain relationships with both parents. According to New Jersey law, fathers' rights include the right to:

  • Pursue custody/visitation time
  • Provide child support/obtain child support (if the custodial parent)
  • Make decisions concerning the child and their upbringing

A father also has equal rights as the child's mother to retain legal and / or physical custody. Courts are required to determine custody based on many factors, such as the prior relationship that each parent had with the child or children.
