Protecting Your Rights to Parenting and Visitation in New Jersey

Attorneys can help with crafting fair parenting time agreements

Murano & Roth, LLC shares your concerns for the well-being of your children. That is why we hold ourselves to the highest standards when helping you address issues -- such as custody and visitation -- that have a major impact on your children's happiness and development.

A fair and reasonable approach to visitation rights

Whenever possible, we encourage parents to resolve visitation issues outside of court. At all times, you must remember to focus on your children's best interests. After all, visitation really is about them, not you or your spouse/ex-spouse. Preserving a child's loving relationship with both parents is the goal advocated by New Jersey law, and we aim to stick by that guideline whenever it is realistic.

Our lawyers understand how devastating it can be to lose parental rights. That is why we create solid strategies aimed at achieving your goals, whether you seek more time with your children or are fighting attempts to limit visitation rights. We also have considerable experience pursuing and defending against claims of abuse, neglect or lack of fitness as a parent. These cases can be complex and generally must be resolved in family court.

How NJ visitation works

Visitation is now called "parenting time" in New Jersey and many other states. The custody arrangement is the first building block of the parenting time plan. From there, our divorce attorneys hammer out agreements that prevent future conflict by addressing such issues as:

  • The number of overnights each parent is allowed in a specific time frame
  • Clear pick-up and drop-off rules, schedules and locations
  • Allocation of vacation, holiday and summer schedules
  • Guidelines about school and extracurricular and family functions
  • Virtual visitation -- staying connected via the internet when a personal meet is not possible due to travel, schedules or distant residency
  • Grandparent visitation

The visitation arrangement can be created or modified by agreement of the parents or by court order.
