If you are facing a divorce, your parenting time arrangements are naturally paramount. Conversely, you may require a parenting time modification – as your children’s needs evolve. Whatever your parenting time concerns, an experienced Ramsey County parenting time lawyer can help.
When you obtain a divorce, you and your divorcing spouse will need to come to a mutually acceptable child custody arrangement – or the court will do so on your behalf. While the court’s motivation is always the best interest of the children, you are naturally better off if you and your children’s other parent can find middle ground on the matter. The courts believe that, except under the direst circumstances, children’s best interests are upheld when they are allowed to forge strong relationships with both parents – by having parenting time with both.
Child custody is grouped into both legal and physical custody, and both can be either sole or joint. Legal custody refers to who makes important decisions related to education, health care, religious upbringing, and extracurricular activities on behalf of your children. Physical custody refers to whom the children live with – or are staying with – at any given time. Even if one parent has sole custody, the other parent generally has visitation, which means that both of you will have a parenting time schedule.
If you and your divorcing spouse can come to an agreement about your parenting time schedule (with the guidance of your respective parenting time lawyers), you are welcome to get creative with the matter – and to hammer out a schedule that works for your unique family. If instead, the court creates a schedule for you, it will take all of the following 12 factors into careful consideration in the process:
