Barring exceptional circumstances, each parent is entitled to parenting time with their children. It is you and your spouse who are being divorced, not you and your children. We will review with you the parenting time schedule which would best fit your needs and that of your children.
If you and your spouse cannot agree as to appropriate arrangements for your children, the court will make decisions regarding custody and parenting time. As your attorney, custody and parenting time issues are among the most important aspect of our representation. In making these decisions, the focus should be, and the focus of the court will be, on what is in the best interests of the child or children involved. It may be necessary to involve custody experts who will meet with the parent and children so as to be able to deliver an opinion to the court as to what arrangement furthers the children's interests. We will further review the process with you, including the Custody Neutral Assessment Process, the Custody Mediation Process and the Expert Evaluation Process.
