Timesharing / Parenting Plan


Parenting Plan cases should be handled in a delicate manner and with the utmost discretion due to the tremendous strain which can be placed upon parents and their minor children.

In recent years there has been an increased emphasis in parenting proceedings determining what is in the best interest of minor child. This new concept of structuring time-sharing with a minor child has leveled the playing field between both parents, a far contrast to the days when a child’s mother was virtually guaranteed to be the primary residential parent of minor children.

Parenting / Time Sharing issues typically arise during a:

  • Divorce
  • Legal separation
  • A long range residential change of address for the custodial parent
  • Following a paternity test
  • When relevant substantial circumstances change within the family structure which warrants a modification

  • Determining which parent (or both) will have decision making authority regarding school related issues, extracurricular activities, health care and other important matters for the child
