What can I do if I’m having child custody issues?
If you are unable to come to an agreement or settle the issue on your own, try seeking mediation.
Legal Services of New Jersey (LSNJ) coordinates the statewide Legal Services system, which provides free legal assistance to low-income New Jerseyans for their civil legal problems.
If immediate and permanent harm will occur if your case isn't heard immediately, you can file your family case as an emergent matter through the State's court system. To learn more, visit the NJ Courts' emergent matters page or contact your local court ombudsman for questions.
For additional resources, visit the NJ Courts' self-help resource page and refer to the "Couples and Families" section.
