What Influences Custody Decisions In New Jersey Courts?

In all cases that involve child custody, the courts prioritize the best interests of the child. To that end, judges consider a variety of factors when issuing custody orders. Some of these factors include:

  • Each parent’s relationship with the child
  • The ability of each parent to care for the child
  • A history of physical or emotional abuse, addiction or mental illness
  • The willingness of parents to cooperate with each other
  • The location of each parent’s permanent residence

Mr. Patti can sit down with you to discuss your circumstances so he can give you a more accurate idea of what to expect. You can speak with him about the outcome that you want, and he will devise a strategy to help you achieve it.

Experience In Mediation And Litigation

Many child custody matters do not require a trial. Instead, parents may wish to work together to find mutually satisfactory arrangements. Granted, this is not always possible or beneficial for everyone. If you feel that out-of-court efforts have not arrived at a solution in your child’s best interests, Mr. Patti will not hesitate to represent you in litigation.
