Your Rights as a Parent in New Jersey

In New Jersey, you have the right to see your children, even if the custodial parent wishes otherwise. State courts have noted that, absent proof of wrongdoing or unfitness, a noncustodial parent has a compelling interest in having visitation rights with his or her child.

Our visiting rights attorneys will work with you to establish a proper schedule with your child, regardless of your current custody situation. If the custodial parent is still attempting to deny your visitation rights, we will pursue sanctions against him or her.

Supervised Visitation and Modifying Past Visitation Schedules

Supervised visitation may be ordered when the child is less familiar with the parent or feels uncomfortable with the situation. It can also be ordered if visiting without supervision could become dangerous for any reason.

If you do not currently feel like your visitation schedule is in the best interests of your child, we will work with you to modify your plan.
