What Are Parental Rights?
In New Jersey, each parent has the right to make decisions and have a say in their child's upbringing. However, the law gives parents shared parental rights. This means that both parents have a right to make decisions and be part of their child's upbringing.
Parental rights include:
- The right to access records.
- The right to visitation.
- The right to make decisions on religion.
- The right to make decisions on medical care.
To protect your parental rights, it is important to familiarize yourself with your rights under New Jersey law. Our firm can help you do this as well as work to assert your parental rights if necessary.
What Can Impact Parental Rights?
In New Jersey, there are many factors that can impact your parental rights. For example, if you move out of state or if you do not pay child support, this could negatively affect your parental rights.
Other factors that can impact parental rights include:
- Abusing or neglecting your children
- Committing a crime
- Using drugs
In New Jersey, the courts will always put the best interests of the child first. While the courts will always consider the wishes of the parents, they will not always grant parents full custody or visitation. The courts may decide to grant joint custody, which would allow both parents to make decisions and be part of their child's upbringing.
