In most instances, New Jersey courts favor joint legal custody. There is even a movement towards joint physical custody. Joint legal custody involves the ability to make important decisions in a child’s life, and physical custody addresses who will more often be providing daily care to the child.

These cases are particularly fact-sensitive, but courts almost always favor parenting time for both parents unless it would be detrimental to the best interests of the child or children.
