Ms. Widman also has experience working in the New Jersey family court system both representing individual parties in child custody and visitation matters as well as serving as a court appointed Guardian Ad Litem for children as needed by the Court. She sees and understands the delicate and emotional nature of these matters from many perspectives, always keeping the best interests of the children paramount.
Ms. Widman takes a direct and professional approach to handling family matters. She works hard for her clients and their children to resolve matters as soon as possible and with as little Court involvement as possible.
There are many different types of custodial arrangements for children in New Jersey. It is important to remember that “custody” refers to both physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody determines where the child(ren) will live, while legal custody governs who has decision-making authority regarding the upbringing of the children. Such decisions include medical decision-making, education, and religion. The Courts have come up with numerous different types of custody arrangements, attempting to meet the individual needs of each family. Each family is different and custody and visitation agreements are tailored to reflect this.
As a Guardian Ad Litem, Ms. Widman meets with the child(ren) and the family to help determine the best interests of the child(ren), which varies dramatically from one family to the next. She combines her legal expertise with knowledge of the family court to investigate all relevant components of each case. Her care and compassion for the children always shines through in each matter she is assigned.
