DOES MARITAL STATUS INFLUENCE CHILD CUSTODY?

Small child with teddy bearThe laws governing child custody in New Jersey are convoluted, to say the least. One facet tipping the scale during a custody battle can be the parents’ marital statuses. Believe it or not, even in these modern times, one or both parents’ marital statuses can and does have an affect on the outcome of a custody dispute. Ensuring that both the parents, and children involved in these cases, receive equal treatment is crucial.

OTHER CHILD CUSTODY FACTORS

Although marital status can have an impact, the courts are mainly concerned with the interests of the child or children in any custody case. Some aspects held in high consideration include:

  • Who will provide the most stable home environment for the child/children
  • The child (or children) and parent relationship
  • Both parent’s ability to provide for the child (or children)
  • Any past criminal or substance issues for the parent(s)
