If you are facing a divorce or end of a relationship, issues related to child custody and parenting time likely top your list of concerns. Further, if you need to have your parenting time schedule modified, it’s an equally important matter. If you are facing a parenting time issue, an experienced Ramsey County parenting time attorney can help.

Parenting time, on the other hand, is concerned with whom the children live with and according to what schedule (known as parenting time). The court’s motivation is always in the best interest of the involved children, and usually, this means spending time with both parents (except in extreme situations). If you and your divorcing spouse or ex are able to come to an agreement regarding a parenting time schedule (or modification), the court will very likely sign off on your terms. If not, the court will make these important decisions for you – guided by what it determines to be in the best interests of the children.

If your parenting time schedule is no longer relevant to your evolving circumstances, a modification is likely in order, and a dedicated parenting time attorney can help.
If you and your children’s other parent are unable to come to terms that you can both agree to, the court will intervene on your behalf. When the court makes decisions regarding parenting time, it carefully weighs all of the following 12 factors:
