Child Custody Disputes in Ocean County

Child custody disputes can be gut-wrenching and heartbreaking. Child custody disputes necessarily involve a family that lacks the capacity to live together harmoniously. Children are sometimes forced to choose between their parents and the parents, who are also suffering, must come to grips that they might not see their children on a day-to-day basis. That result can be very difficult on the parent and the child. To maintain a functioning, if not nuclear, family dynamic, family court judges must emphasize the best interests of the child in making a custody order as required by New Jersey statute 9:2-4. The judge can take any number of factors listed in the statute into consideration when making the custody order.

Child Support Orders in Ocean County

A necessary component of child custody is child support. The noncustodial parent, more often than not, must contribute to the financial well-being of their children by making weekly child support payments. Child support orders are determined by the New Jersey child support guidelines. The guidelines take into consideration how much time the noncustodial parent spends with their children as well as how much money each party makes. Child support orders can last until the children have graduated from college or no longer reside with their custodial parent.

Divorce Issues In Ocean County

Alimony is among the most contentious matters in an Ocean County divorce case. A judge can award alimony to a divorcing spouse for a specified length of time, or an alimony award can be indeterminate if the marriage was twenty years or longer. Whether alimony should be awarded and the duration of alimony payments requires a thorough analysis of the factors and considerations listed in New Jersey Statute 2A: 34-23.

Equitable division of marital property is another contentious issue in Ocean City divorce cases.
