Morris County, NJ Child Custody Lawyer

Are you facing a child custody battle?

Child custody is one of the most sensitive and important issues to be handled in a divorce. Where the child will live, which parent will make important decisions on a daily basis for the child, and what is in the child's best interest are all issues of the utmost important when going through a divorce where children are involved. In addition, the decision of child custody can affect the amount of child support and spousal support/alimony that will be paid from one parent to the other. Child custody is an extremely important issue, and you should not go into court without the aid of an experienced Morris County divorce attorney on your side.

Whether through mediation or through divorce court litigation, the legal knowledge and skills of a divorce attorney will help you feel confident that your voice is being heard throughout the process and your rights as a parent are being protected.

Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act

Under N.J. Stat. Ann. § 2A:34-53, the UCCJEA is an act that was passed in the state of New Jersey in 2004, replacing the former Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act. It is in regards to who governs the issue of child custody amongst different state courts, and looks to provide collaboration between them to find the solution that works in the best interests of the child. With the states working together, a New Jersey court can request that another state assist by conducting an evidentiary hearing, ordering an individual to attend the child custody proceeding, ordering an evaluation be conducted, order an individual to give evidence regarding the case and sending the New Jersey court a certified copy of relevant information such as an evaluation, evidence or transcript from the hearing. Adoption and authorizing emergency medical care for a couple's child are not covered in the act.
