Q: Greetings, Would like to obtain information re family laws concerning non-marriage co-parenting arrangements. Thanks!
A: Married or unmarried, if you are a parent, you have specific rights and obligations and the best way to know what those rights and obligations are is to schedule a consultation with a family law specialist. And, moving forward, it is best to have a formal written agreement in place spelling out the terms of the parenting time plan, custody arrangement, access to professionals and documentation, and as to the payment of support/sharing of specific expenses ( and the procedure to address what expenses are to be shared).
A: You really need to have a consultation with an experienced matrimonial attorney to completely access your situation and provide legal advice and guidance. With modern technology, you can be represented by any high-quality attorney in New Jersey irrespective of geography.
