Experiencing Divorce: How to Navigate Temporary Child Custody with Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek Introduction

Divorce is emotional and stressful, especially with children. Temporary child custody agreements can be complicated, but Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek can help. Our experienced team can help you create a temporary child custody agreement that meets your child’s needs and your family’s unique circumstances.

The Importance of Temporary Child Custody

When children are involved, divorce is harder. A temporary child custody agreement is crucial while you’re divorcing. During divorce proceedings, this agreement will govern custody and visitation.

Preparing for a New Life and Identifying Assets

During a divorce, it can be difficult to divide assets, prepare for your new life, and figure out child custody. But with Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek, you can rest assured that we will fight for your child’s best interests.

Child Custody: Temporary vs. Permanent

Temporary child custody orders resolve custody and visitation issues temporarily. Early in the divorce process, parents usually request it. Permanent child custody is decided at the end of the divorce case and may differ from temporary child custody for various reasons.

Show, Don’t Tell: Ask Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek for Temporary Custody.

If you and your soon-to-be ex-partner can agree on temporary child custody, you can file a stipulation with the court. Our team at Spodek Law Group and Attorney Todd Spodek can help you create an emotionally charged, compelling agreement that highlights your child’s best interests and your dedication to their well-being.

Temporary Child Custody Requests

You must file a motion for temporary child custody during the divorce process to request temporary custody. You must include dates and times in your motion for temporary child custody. Each parent’s living environment, physical and mental health, and the child’s best interests will be considered by the court.


New Jersey’s temporary child custody arrangements are shown in the table below:

Child Custody Arrangement Temporary
Sole Physical Child Custody
This arrangement gives one parent fewer than two overnights with the child but plenty of visitation.

Shared Physical Child Custody
In this arrangement, the child spends significant time with each parent, but not equal time.

Child Custody
In this unusual arrangement, the child spends equal time with each parent, requiring cooperation and coordination.

NJ Parents and Pendente Lite Agreements

Divorcing spouses often agree to temporary child support and alimony in pendente lite agreements. Amicable agreements or court petitions can lead to these agreements. The courts will issue a temporary child custody order if one or both parents request one.

Courts’ Considerations in Temporary Child Custody Hearings

The court determines the child’s best interests during temporary child custody hearings. To do so, the court may consider factors like each parent’s financial situation and living situation, the child’s relationship with each parent, the child’s needs, and the parents’ ability to communicate and co-parent.

Temporary custody arrangements

Temporary child custody agreements are comparable to final ones. Co-parents in New Jersey have three basic child custody arrangements:
Physical custody: If the non-custodial parent has fewer than two overnights with the child.
Shared physical child custody: When each parent has significant custodial time but not equal time.
Joint physical child custody: When a child spends equal time with each parent.
