Matters of Importance to the Court in Child Custody

When a child custody order is issued, there are various factors that are reviewed in making a decision, including the ability of the parents to cooperate in matters related to parenting, and the interaction of each child with regard to parents and other children in the family.

Additional factors that are considered include:

  • Whether there is any history of domestic violence
  • The safety of the child
  • The wishes of the child when old enough
  • The actual needs of the child
  • The stability of the home of each parent
  • The education and the fitness of each parent
  • The employment of each parent
  • The extent of the parenting time spent in caring for the children in the past

New Jersey's Prevention of Domestic Violence Act presumes that the child's best interests are served by awarding custody to the other parent if the other has a history of domestic violence. This is an important fact in seeking a modification, as if your children have been neglected or suffered emotional or physical abuse from the other parent who has custody or visitation rights, it is extremely important to get the order modified, as quickly as possible, and I can assist you to pursue this modification. All accusations of domestic violence, abuse or neglect must be supported by fact, and we should discuss this issue immediately.
