How Does Child Custody Work In New Jersey?

In New Jersey, child custody is divided into two categories: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody is the right to make important decisions about the child’s upbringing, including education, health care and religious upbringing. On the other hand, physical custody pertains to where the child resides on a day-to-day basis.

Both physical and legal custody can be allocated solely to one parent or jointly shared between the parents, with shared custody being the norm. Many custody agreements are custom-crafted and as unique as the families they involve.

As your child custody attorney, I can provide valuable guidance and support throughout your custody case, helping you understand child custody laws and reach a favorable outcome for your family.
