Parenting laws in New Jersey are gender neutral. They do not favor parents based on whether they are biological or adoptive parents. The courts operate under the general premise that is in a child’s best interest to have close healthy relationships with both their parents whenever possible, and will look to custody and parenting time arrangements to provide this to the children.
