The New Jersey legislature has just introduced a new bill that would facilitate access to the court system, when a parent’s visitation or parenting time with a child has been denied, blocked or frustrated. Senate Bill S-2558, December 19, 2014.
The current New Jersey visitation schedule was set by agreement of the parties. The schedule is not contrary to the best interest of their daughter. Neither parent made a prima facie showing of changed circumstances, so the schedule will remain in place.L.J.M. v. B.S.B., New Jersey App. Div., August 31, 2012
"Accordingly, and after careful consideration of the circumstances of the nature and extent of the multiple instances of violation of the court order, the plaintiff is sentenced to a period of incarceration for six weekends, to be served on the first and third weekends of each month for the months of June, July and August, 2010. Prior to these weekends of the plaintiff's incarceration, she shall transport the children to the defendant's home to assure their continued care and well being." Lauren R. v. Ted R., New York State Supreme Ct., October 27, 2010
