How child visitation schedules are created and why

A child visitation schedule may be created by parents or the court in New Jersey either during or after a divorce. It sets out a schedule for the child's time with each parent that parents must abide by. It is separate from a custody schedule, which is a schedule that is set up if parents are sharing custody.

Crafting a parenting time schedule for divorcing parents of a special needs child

A special needs child requires structure and predictability in their daily schedules. The slightest deviation can compound a special needs child's anxiety. Indeed, parents of a special needs child are quite familiar with the meltdowns that can result from the most minute modifications to that child's schedule. Conversely, a strict maintenance to a consistent schedule can alleviate a special needs child's anxiety over time - as it provides comfort and certainty in a world they struggle to process and understand. 

Factors used to determine child custody matters

It is not uncommon for child custody cases in New Jersey to be contentious affairs. However, there are several universal factors that generally determine the outcome whether it is decided by a judge or by the parents themselves. Ultimately, any decision that is made is supposed to be in the best interest of the child. This is true whether the parents are given joint custody or if one person is named the custodial parent.

Early planning helps post-divorce finances

Picking out wedding rings and signing divorce documents may seem worlds apart to many New Jersey citizens, but high divorce rates are leading many to consider divorce planning right alongside wedding planning. While some consider it cynical, pragmatic couples who want to protect assets from divorce litigation see such planning as a type of insurance they plan on never using.
