Fathers Rights in New Jersey Divorce

Divorced or Never Married Fathers in New Jersey Have Parental Rights

In New Jersey, the law does not favor one gender over the other regarding parental rights. According to the law, mothers and fathers are supposed to have the same rights — and obligations — concerning their children. Even though the law is clear, there are occasions when fathers have reasons to believe their parenting time has not been protected and they have been mistreated by the courts or the mother of their child.
