In New Jersey, if you have a family law matter that needs to be handled, it will be handled in the Family Division of the Superior Court. Many family law matters can be emotionally tumultuous for the parents and children involved. There are many different matters that can be handled in family court, including custody matters, spousal support, equitable distribution, modifications, and visitation schedules.
It can be very stressful on a person when they are in jeopardy of losing custody of their child or another similar situation. The New Jersey court is always going to make decisions based upon what is in the best interest of the child. You should prepare yourself not to get everything you want when you go to family court because what you believe is in the best interest of your child may not align with what the court believes is in the best interest of the child. There are a number other factors to be aware of when it comes time to go to family court.
You should make sure you arrive on time, you are prepared to make a statement, and that you have an understanding of what the other side is trying to achieve. If you have questions regarding your family law matter, it is important that you consult with an experienced family law attorney who can provide you with assistance.
