Respected Counselors, Litigators and Mediators

New Jersey Child Custody Lawyers

In any divorce with children involved, as well as any child-related legal matter outside of divorce, New Jersey courts make decisions and issue orders based on the best interests of the child. Parents' views of what that means within their families often differ significantly. While every effort should be made to reach an amicable settlement regarding physical custody, legal custody and parenting time, having a proven litigator on your side may be essential for protection of your parental rights and most important relationships.

Experienced, Creative Custody And Visitation Attorneys In Morris County

The family lawyers at Donahue, Hagan, Klein & Weisberg, LLC, have many decades of experience helping people resolve complex child custody and visitation concerns. We are dedicated to achieving divorce outcomes that promote continued close relationships with both parents whenever possible, in full view of mothers' and fathers' career obligations and other priorities.

New Jersey custody agreements and orders must address whether one parent will serve as the primary residential parent or the parents will share joint physical custody. Legal custody establishes who will make major decisions regarding children's health, education, religion and general welfare. In many situations, creating a workable, highly specific parenting time schedule is as important as any other aspect of the case.

  • Achievement of a fair and just custody and visitation arrangement without putting these vital decisions in the hands of a judge, whether through direct negotiations or mediation
  • Informed, rigorous advocacy in any intensely contested custody matter, which may require thorough analysis of family dynamics and the involvement of other qualified professionals
  • Modifications of child custody, parenting time, child support or other orders sometimes justified by a significant change in either parents' or children's circumstances — including negotiation or litigation associated with proposed child relocation
