Question #8

Pertaining to separation and divorce, are there any laws in the State of New Jersey that prohibit boyfriend or girlfriend from staying overnight when children are present? Do you have access to a listing of Mediators in the State of New Jersey?  

I am assuming from your question that you and your spouse are now living separately. I am not aware of any law in New Jersey or any other state which expressly forbids a boyfriend or girlfriend from staying overnight when children are present. However, the courts have looked askance at such practices and have used it, in some instances, as a basis to grant child custody to the other spouse, especially when the children are upset about the presence of the boyfriend or girlfriend.

I suggest that you call me at 212-370-1660 to arrange for a meeting or call your local bar association to locate and experienced lawyer-mediator who is specially trained in divorce mediation.
