What arguments stem from custody arrangements?

Child custody options in New Jersey include sole custody, joint legal custody, and shared legal and physical custody. Many parents entered the divorce process with a strong belief that pursuing sole custody is by far the best option and are ready to fight for it. In sole custody arrangements, one parent is considered to be the primary residential parent. This parent makes all of the major decisions for the child regarding health, education, and general welfare as well as all day-to-day decisions. The sole custodial parent does not need to obtain consent from the other parent before making these child-related decisions.

The main goal for child custody plans is for the child to share time with both parents whenever possible. Unless the child’s other parent is absent or unfit, pursuing full custody can be the wrong fit for the family and a child custody battle can erupt when the other parent fights back.
