Parenting time determines the all-important schedule that guides how parents who are no longer together will divide their time with their shared children. Parenting time is addressed at the time of divorce, but post-divorce modifications are also common – and parents who were never married can face parenting time concerns outside of divorce. Having the professional legal guidance of an experienced parenting time attorney in Stillwater on your side is the surest way to help protect your parental rights as they relate to parenting time.

If your parenting plan, however, does stall your negotiations, you can expect to receive one of the court’s standard parenting time schedules.
