As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer I am often asked about parenting time. In New Jersey there is residential custody. There are various kinds of residential custody. A parent could be the primary parent while the other parent is the alternate parent. However, those are labels and what we want to focus on is the visitation schedule otherwise known as parenting time. That will dictate who is the primary parent or who is the alternate parent. In some cases, people have shared residential custody and nobody is designated the parent of primary or the parent of alternate because it is a true 50/50 arrangement.
