The law provides that the court is to make orders that are in the best interests of children. As a parent, you can start a proceeding in the Superior Court and ask the court to make orders that are in the best interests of your child, which can include establishing custody and a visitation schedule, and other orders that are beneficial for your child. Relatedly, the law also provides that it is in the best interest of a child to have contact with both parents, however, the court will consider all relevant facts and circumstances to ensure the child's health, safety and welfare.
