Children And Divorce: Protecting Their Best Interests
Divorce may be fundamentally a legal issue between two people, but when there are minor children in a marriage, parental rights and children’s rights and interests also come into play. At Tournour Law, we have been helping clients in East Brunswick navigate divorce since 1999. A divorce with children typically includes protecting their well-being through custody and support orders. We help families in New Jersey protect their child’s best interests in divorce.
Educating Clients: Separation, Divorce And Children
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 during divorce or separation.
At our family law firm, we provide education to our clients along with their representation. As a parent of minor children who is preparing for a divorce, when you become a client of the firm, you can expect empathy, clear communication and a focus on your family’s future. We counsel clients efficiently and thoroughly through all aspects of divorce and its impact on parenting, including the following legal issues:
- Mediation that involves child custody, negotiations and litigation that take into account the distinctions between physical and legal custody
- Arrangements for parenting time and visitation that are practical and respectful of parental rights
- Special circumstances such as custody or visitation for grandparents
- Paternity actions as necessary
- Modification of custody and support orders
- Enforcement of court orders for custody, visitation and support
When you work with our firm, we never lose sight of the fact that we represent you. At the same time, we diligently inform you of family law courts’ priorities for the protection of children’s welfare during and after a divorce.
Above all, do not panic as you simultaneously navigate a divorce and continue parenting your children. We are ready to support you through this challenging but not uncommon process.
