Parents often make the mistake of confusing custody with parenting time, often referred to as visitation. However, under New Jersey law, the custodial parent doesn't necessarily have the right to additional parenting time over the noncustodial parent.
A parenting plan generally indicates which parent is responsible for the child on certain days. With minor exceptions, New Jersey courts want to make sure your child has substantially equal time and contact with you and your spouse. Parental rights and visitation differ from case to case and are decided based on factors that include the welfare of your child.
"In most cases, we are able to work out a parenting plan that fits everyone's needs. On rare occasions, the court gets involved. If a trial becomes necessary, you can rest assured you will have a powerful and passionate voice in the courtroom." — Michele Crupi
