What factors determine the best interests of the child?

When New Jersey parents go through a divorce, their main priority is shielding their children from any unnecessary conflict and stress they may experience. Even though the end of a marriage is about the two adults in the relationship, the youngest members of the family can have a difficult time with this decision. In order to prevent unnecessary emotional and mental duress, parents will find it beneficial to focus on the best interests of their kids above all else.

Can you keep a combative divorce from impacting your kids?

No one -- particularly couples with kids -- wants a messy, combative divorce, but sometimes it happens. Maybe your soon-to-be-ex isn't handling the break-up well and always seems to be picking fights. Maybe the two of you are nowhere close to agreeing on things like property division, support, child custody and other issues, and that impacts your interactions.

Is a co-parenting class worthwhile even without your ex?

Co-parenting classes are designed to help parents who are no longer a couple learn to communicate, cooperate and compromise with one another for the well-being of their children. Sometimes a judge will order parents to enroll in a co-parenting class. However, separated or divorced couples sometimes choose to take a co-parenting class to learn how to navigate this new phase of parenthood.
