Custody & Parenting Time

Knowing What's Important for Your Children

Determining child custody is one of the most stressful parts of a divorce or the end of a relationship. It's an emotional issue that typically requires you to work out many issues with your child's other parent. You need a lawyer who will work to simplify this process while always keeping the best interests of your children in the forefront.

In addition to being an attorney, Steven Lane is also a court-appointed parenting-time (custody) mediator in Somerset County, New Jersey. He uses this knowledge and experience to help parents reach an amicable custody agreement whenever possible. Call Lane & Lane, LLC, at 908-524-0788 to set up an appointment at our Somerville office.

Getting Started With Child Custody

All custodial issues are based on the child's needs and best interests. An experienced attorney can help with determining:

  • Legal custody
  • Residential custody
  • Parenting-time schedules
  • Holiday parenting time
  • Vacation parenting time
  • Scheduling events such as activities and vacations
  • Access to your child's school records, teachers, etc.
  • Access to your child's healthcare records, providers, physicians, therapists, etc.

Steven and Daniel Lane both have experience handling serious and sensitive child custody cases.

Potential Problems

When a parent does not follow the custody agreement, problems can arise. If you need help with enforcement of your custody agreement, contact us today.

We can also help with attempts at modification of the agreement, including the removal or relocation of a child outside the state of New Jersey. Don't attempt to tackle these issues on your own. Protecting your child's interest is important. Hire a lawyer who understands the process and will look out for you and your child's welfare.
