The Law Offices of Irwin D. Tubman, LLC

Of all the issues that go along with a divorce, child custody and visitation matters are some of the most emotional. At the Law Offices of Irwin D. Tubman, LLC, in both Hudson and Middlesex Counties, we understand how important your children are to you. Our firm will assertively represent you with the goal of protecting your rights, your relationship with your children and your children’s future.

Lawyer Irwin D. Tubman is willing and able to be aggressive in helping you achieve the child custody and parenting time solutions you are seeking. However, when children are involved, it’s important to remember that your case is not about winning or losing. Legally and emotionally, your needs to be focused on doing what is in your children’s best interests.

It’s not unusual for clients to tell us they want sole custody of children. However, sole custody may not be a realistic goal absent issues such as child abuse, neglect and endangerment. New Jersey courts will want your children to have a positive relationship with both parents. Disparaging the other parent before the court or children can actually hurt your case.

Our firm can advise and represent you in matters involving:

  • Sole Physical Custody
  • Joint Legal Custody
  • Visitation (Called Parenting Time in New Jersey)
  • Child Custody Evaluations
  • Child Custody Disputes
  • Child Custody and Visitation Issues for Unmarried Parents
  • New Jersey Child Support Guidelines
  • Child Relocation After Divorce
  • Paternity as It Affects Visitation Rights
  • Termination of Parental Rights

With us by your side you can protect your rights, your relationship with your children and your children’s future. Remember, a key component in these cases is understanding that the court will determine what is in your child’s best interests is knowing the thought process and tendencies of the judge assigned to your case. Based upon our relationships with judges and familiarity with them we can assist in this regard and avoid surprises.


When changes to a custody arrangement are necessary because of a change in a parent’s job schedule or because of a child’s changing needs, we may be able to negotiate an acceptable modification outcome on your behalf. In cases involving parental relocation, we sometimes are able to negotiate a solution, but the case will likely lead to a New Jersey courtroom where it is critical that you have a lawyer who understands the criteria the court will apply.

Whatever the child custody, visitation or parental rights matter, the Law Offices of Irwin D. Tubman, LLC, will represent you with the aim of protecting your rights and advancing your children’s well-being. If you have been denied custody or visitation, we can help.
