Requesting a name change during divorce

New Jersey divorced or separated parents may find some information regarding parenting useful. Whenever a divorce is filed, the result can directly affect a relationship with a child. Visitation times are crucial to the child's well-being but may be difficult to adjust to at first.

How do New Jersey courts decide on the custody of a child?

The courts must consider several factors to determine the custody of a child. However, parents may also create parenting plans for the courts to accept or request modifications.

Domestic partnership dissolution in New Jersey

When a couple dissolves their domestic partnership, their status will become as it was prior to entering into the partnership in the first place.

Unfortunately, the protections afforded to divorcing married couples are not available to those dissolving domestic partnerships under certain circumstances.
