Child Custody / Parenting Time
Child Custody and Parenting Time New Jersey
A child custody and parenting time attorney from O’Cathain Law Group knows that one of the hardest aspects of getting a divorce is wondering what will happen to your children. Children have the power to keep us motivated and to remind us of what we are fighting for when it comes to difficult times like separation or divorce.
We want to be there to help you get the child custody arrangement that works so that your children can grow up in the best situation and home possible. When it comes to custody and parenting time, our attorneys know that this can take on many forms in a divorce, including:
Arguing For Primary Or Joint Custody Arrangements
Modifying Custody Orders
Creating A Visitation Rights Plan
Enforcing The Orders That Are In Place
Helping Create A Plan That Outlines The Children’s Education And Who Will Pay For It
These are just a few ways an attorney from O’Cathain Law Group can help you on your child custody and parenting time journey.
Advocating For Mediation
During divorces, especially those that are contentious, you may be prepared to head to court and fight your heart out and your parenting instincts can kick in. However, we advocate for ending the relationship amicably, when possible. This is especially true in divorces that involve kids. If possible, we will advocate that you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse go through the mediation process. When discussing custody and parenting time, you need to consider what will truly be in your children’s best interests, not what is easiest for you or what may hurt their other parent. We believe in mediation in most situations to effectively strategize how custody and parenting time can be arranged to give your children the best opportunities to grow up with both parents present.
Preparing For Court
In some instances, however, our attorneys need to look for the signs that an amicable divorce is not possible and that a child custody battle might turn ugly. This is one of the reasons it is critical that you have an attorney. Litigation may be necessary to protect your children’s best interests, especially if one parent is acting in a hostile manner.
