Child Custody And Child Support Lawyers

With the dissolution of a relationship where a couple has children, whether married or unmarried, frequently disputes involving custody and support often become contentious and require the need of Court intervention to settle the disputes.

Physical And Legal Child Custody In New Jersey

Custody cases involve both physical and legal custody of the child. There are two types of child custody:

  1. Physical custody is where the child resides, and
  2. Legal custody entails the decision-making process for the parents including the right to decide educational preferences, religious practices, medical treatment and extracurricular activities.

The child custody lawyers of Hoffman DiMuzio will insure that a fair parenting plan, which addresses both physical and legal custody, is reached in the child’s best interest.

Our child custody attorneys routinely handle child custody cases and can help to determine the best custody arrangement for you and your children.

If contested, we will review the custody evaluator’s recommendation, identify the children’s preferences, and explain how our custody statutes impact your specific case.

Should I Hire A Lawyer For Child Custody In NJ?

Both parents have a legal obligation to financially support their children until the children are emancipated. Family litigation generally necessitates that the obligation be quantified and established by a Court.

In most cases, one parent is designated the parent of primary residence and the other parent is designated the parent of alternate residence.

Although there are exceptions, the parent of alternate residence will likely be required to pay child support to the parent of primary residence on behalf of the child.

In most cases, New Jersey has established a formula known as Child Support Guidelines for the calculation and quantification of a child support award.

While the formula is the same in all counties of New Jersey, what is of significant importance are the various incomes and other costs that are entered into the formula that have an impact on the support calculation.

It is in these complex areas that our attorneys can most effectively represent our clients.
