About Visitation in Monmouth County
Divorce Attorney Serving Freehold, Colts Neck, & Monmouth County
"As a New Jersey Family Law Attorney, I know that visitation issues
("parenting time") can be emotional and difficult issues in
many divorce and other family law cases.
Gone are the days of fathers automatically receiving alternate weekend
visitation with their children plus one evening for dinner in virtually
While this still happens in many cases, many other fathers are not content
with this traditional approach that many judges, lawyers, and litigants
had found to be acceptable in the past. Creative lawyering has resulted
in many different types of timesharing arrangements for parents with their children.
Sometimes a parent will inappropriately deny access to a child to the other parent.

NJ Family Court can improve the need for immediate access to Superior
Court Judges in parenting time dispute situations.
In the past few years, I have seen a dramatic increase in the number of
fathers who seek (and obtain) primary custody. Fathers can argue for their
fathers’ rights in many situations and will work hard to make sure
that they are given a fair amount of time with their children. If you
are a father who is being deprived of the right to share significant,
quality time with your child, I can help.
Additionally, New Jersey has a statute
allowing grandparents to seek visitation over the objection of one of the children's biological parents in appropriate
circumstances. Grandparents are given the right to go to court over this
issue. If the courts find it appropriate to allow the child time with
the grandparents, then a parent’s wishes can be denied in order
to give the children time with their grandma and grandpa. Are you a grandparent
seeking visitation rights with your grandchildren? If so, I would be happy
to discuss your rights with you.
