The Parents Education Act and Mandatory Programs in Child Custody Disputes
In New Jersey, lawmakers have recognized a need for more cooperative problem solving in often thorny divorce disputes. As a result, they have initiated mandatory programs for people who have not resolved the custody and/or visitation issues at the inception of their divorce. These programs offer disputing couples access to mental health and custody experts who can provide insight into the emotional nature of these conflicts and the need for reasonable decision-making in the process.
Relocation and New Jersey Statute N.J.S.A. 9:2-1 et seq.
After your divorce is final, it is natural that you may end up taking a job somewhere else, end up in a new relationship, or have family issues that otherwise require you to relocate. This can be a difficult and sometimes heartbreaking situation for you and your children as it only widens the gap between each party in the family. To address the sensitive nature of these concerns, New Jersey Statue N.J.S.A. 9:2-2 requires that a child native to or residing in New Jersey can only be removed from New Jersey with consent from the other parent in a divorce or with an Order of the Court.
