Child Custody Matters The Artusa Law Firm: "We know from much experience how important it is that Child Custody matters are dealt with in a delicate way.  A child's best interests must come first".  

In the matter of Child Custody, all aspects of the situation must be clearly defined and reviewed in order to ensure the best interests of the child are taken to heart.  On too many occasions, due to a volatile relationship between a mother and father, the child's/children's well being gets overlooked.  The Artusa Law Firm takes these matters extremely serious and because of vast experience in these matters, the Artusa Law Firm will fight for the needs and interests of the child.  The following points are some a parent must consider when it comes to their individual situation:

Courts generally start with the assumption that children are more likely to thrive and have a healthy childhood when they're able to spend time with both parents (unless there's proof otherwise, such as a record of domestic violence or substance abuse). The types of custody considered by New Jersey courts include:

  • Joint Custody: Child lives with one parent or alternates between parents, and parents work together when determining medical and educational decisions;

  • Sole Custody: Child lives with one parent and receives appropriate time with non-custodial parent; or guardian.  Any other custody arrangement the court finds to be in the best interests of the child.
