When parents decide to end their relationship, whether they were married or not, that decision has a major impact on the couple's children. With whom will the children live? What will the visitation schedule be? What can be done to help the child or children have strong relationships with both parents? The best way to begin answering these questions is by working with an experienced, skilled lawyer.
At The Cody Law Firm, our New Jersey child custody lawyers help clients achieve custody and parenting time arrangements that are healthy for all involved. Based in Hammonton, we serve clients in Atlantic County, Burlington County and Camden County and throughout the state. Our lead family law attorney, Doug Cody, has handled sensitive and emotional child custody matters and difficult custody litigation since 2004.
Seeking Custody Arrangements That Preserve Relationships Between Parents And Children
There is much to consider when thinking about child custody in New Jersey. It is often best for couples to try to work out their own arrangements outside of court, to avoid having a judge decide for them. Our team is skilled at facilitating conversations between parents to help them consider all the variables as they work out an agreement. If these kinds of negotiations are not productive, we will not hesitate to protect our clients' rights in court.
When you visit our firm, we can explain the details of New Jersey child custody law and help you understand how it may apply to your family. We can help you with issues such as:
- Sole custody, shared custody or joint custody
- Physical versus legal custody
- Parenting plans and visitation rights
- Post-judgment modification of custody or visitation
- Parental relocation
- Paternity testing to establish parental rights
Whether you are going through divorce or were never married, The Cody Law Firm is prepared to help you take steps to ensure a strong relationship between you and your child as you move forward in life.
