Child Custody & Parenting Time

Parents Often Best-Suited to Set Schedules

One of the most difficult aspects of any divorce or break-up of an unmarried family is dealing with child custody and parenting time issues. It can be intimidating, stressful and emotional to have a court determine with which parent your child spends most of his or her time. The Deni Law Group attorneys have many years of experience handling child custody and parenting time issues before the courts in New Jersey, and we’re here to help you.

Legal vs. residential custody

During your initial phone consultation with one of our attorneys, we will explain your rights regarding child custody and parenting time. In particular, we will explain the differences between legal custody and residential custody classifications in New Jersey and how these rights are viewed by the New Jersey courts. Our attorneys will also gather a detailed history of your family so that we can fully explore the fact-sensitive nature of custody and parenting time.

Scheduling Parenting time

In child support cases where net income exceeds $187,200 per year, determining the amount of child support requires additional analysis. In such cases, the child support guidelines are used to determine the minimum amount of child support awarded, and then additional analysis is used to determine how much to deviate up from the minimum guideline amount.

The Deni Law Group’s experienced family law attorneys handle child support obligations that arise in a number of different contexts, including divorce, separation, support between non-married individuals, post-judgment or modification applications, emancipation of the child, and appeals.


The expertise of The Deni Law Group attorneys does not end with the initial break-up of a family or a divorce. We also have many years of experience handling modifications of custody and parenting time plans. Modification cases often can be just as involved as an initial determination of custody, and our attorneys will ensure that you are apprised of your rights throughout the process.

Sensitive issues, Alligations

In particular, The Deni Law Group attorneys are adept at handling very sensitive issues that affect custody and parenting time, such as allegations of drug or alcohol abuse, allegations of physical abuse or child sexual abuse, allegations of child neglect, and even such issues as parents having diametrically opposite views on how best to raise their child.

International custody, Kidnapping

The Deni Law Group attorneys also have expertise in handling international child kidnapping cases, as well as custody cases that reach across state lines and international borders. Our attorneys can walk you through the delicate legal puzzle known as the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA), which addresses interstate custody disputes, and the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA), which addresses interstate child support disputes.
