- There are two types of custody in NJ: legal custody and physical custody
- Where the child resides is physical custody; legal custody deals with decision-making for the child – who makes those decisions.
- The courts lean toward joint custody, because they want both parents involved in making decisions regarding the welfare of the child.
- Regarding parenting time, the courts require the parties involved to go through mediation to work out an equitable solution that meets the needs of the child.
