Establishing Child Custody in Toms River

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 parenting rights.
  • 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 and professionalism.

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.
