Your Children And Your Divorce
Divorce may be fundamentally a legal matter between two people, but when there are minor children in a marriage, parental rights and children’s rights and interests also come into play. A divorce with children typically includes protecting their well-being through custody and support orders.
Parents may disagree on many things, but nearly all can agree that they want healthy, happy children. Understanding the impact of divorce on children and safeguarding parent-child relationships are part of the process of parents’ divorce or separation. Tournour Law in East Brunswick has helped many New Jersey families through the process of divorce with full consideration of children’s best interests in legal areas such as custody and child support.
