Custody and parenting time are two of the most difficult issues in divorce cases involving children where the parties cannot agree on a plan moving forward. In New Jersey, courts evaluate what is in a child’s best interests in addressing these issues. In making custody and parenting time determinations, a court may order a risk assessment, a custody and/or parenting time evaluation, or even appoint a Guardian ad Litem or court appointed counsel to represent a child’s interests.
Join Angela M. Scafuri, Shareholder at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, for an informative program that explores these pressing issues. This is an excellent course for both new and seasoned practitioners facing difficult custody and parenting time issues in divorce litigation.
