Protecting Your Role as a Parent After Divorce

New Jersey parents want nothing more than to retain strong relationships with their children after divorce. The end of your marriage does not mean an end to your role as a loving and active parent, and you have the right to protect that. Fighting for your parental rights may continue well after your divorce is final.

The finalization of your divorce does not necessarily mean the finalization of the problems you have with the other parent. Hard feelings may continue and difficulties can carry on, ultimately affecting your custody schedule, along with the relationship you have with your child. This is parenting time interference, and you can take steps to make it stop. 


Was the college admittance scandal criminal?

What happens to a business when the owner gets divorced?

Divorce results in the division of marital property. When a divorce involves a business owner, the business may be subject to division. Business owners can take steps to avoid this, such as the use of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. However, absent a business owner's active attempts to keep the property separate, the business will likely be subject to division during divorce.

The odds may be in your favor, or you may be at a decided disadvantage. Nevertheless, you have to make a positive impact during your custody hearing to reach your goal of obtaining custody.
