Call a Trusted Ocean County Divorce Lawyer - (732) 994-6940
One of the most stressful matters you may deal with when going through
a divorce is child custody. Oftentimes, child custody cases are highly
sensitive cases and require the high-quality legal support of a divorce
lawyer. At Jay Turnbach, Esq., LLC, our founder has
more than 20 years experience and is a
Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney dedicated to working towards the resolution you desire. We have the best
interests of your child in mind.
When determining child custody, the court will consider multiple factors
that are in the best interests of the child involved. These factors could
include the way a child lives, the ability of a parent to support the
child and any past history of physical harm from a parent. The judge will
then determine the type of custody that suits the child best.
Types of child custody can include:
Sole legal custody - One parent decides the important decisions in the child's life such
as school, medical care, and religious upbringing.
Joint legal custody - Both parents decide the important decisions in the child's life.
Sole physical custody - The child lives primarily with one parent and the other parent may have
Joint physical custody - The child spends a significant amount of time staying at both parent's homes.
Because children are easily influenced by their surroundings, it's
important to provide your child a safe environment. We take child custody
cases seriously, and we can handle your legal matter with the utmost respect
Agreeing on Custody Through Mediation
Similar to most cases related to divorce, child custody can be settled
outside of court through the mediation process. Resolving child custody
issues outside of court can help reduce the amount of money and time spent
on hearings. We can help you come to a sound decision and explain the
laws pertaining to child custody. Whether you're seeking sole or joint
legal or physical custody, our Ocean County and Monmouth County divorce
attorney can provide you with the resources and sensible representation you need.
