Discussing parenting time and similar issues when you are going through a divorce can often lead to considerable issues between you and your child's other parent. Just last week, we discussed how some child custody cases might involve allegations of abuse. Issues like that can often make the child custody issues even more pronounced.
We understand that you want to spend as much time as possible with your children. The thought of having the court decide how your parenting plan should be set up is likely upsetting. Still, if you and your child's other parent can't agree on the plan, the court will decide on a plan for you.
We can help you to understand your rights for parenting time agreements. If you end up having to go to court to get a parenting plan set up, we can fight for your rights to parent your child and spend time with your child.
There are a lot of factors to consider when you think about a parenting plan. You have to consider what will happen during the summer months, on the weekends and on vacations from school. You have to think about which parent will make which decisions about the child.
Once a parenting plan is set, you and the child's other parent have to abide by it. In situations where there is tension, that isn't always easy. If you are having difficulties getting the other parent to abide by the terms of the parenting plan, we can help you to explore your options for dealing with the issues that come up.
