To Resolve Custody And Parenting Time Disputes, Be Thoughtful, Creative And, If Possible, Collaborative
Every day, month and year of your child’s life contains opportunities for milestones and bonding experiences. If you are like most parents, you don’t want to miss any more than you have to because of your divorce or separation. Children growing up passes quickly, and it is important to resolve custody and parenting time disputes efficiently and effectively so life can carry on with as few complications as possible.
From law offices in St. Paul and Northfield, our family law attorneys keep clients’ priorities in mind while advising them on the best ways to resolve disputes.
It Is Not Just About The Time It May Take But About Your Family’s Future
With much to consider and much at stake, it is essential to have legal counsel you can trust as you engage in the process of preparing to let a court approve or determine your custody and parenting time arrangements.
You will likely need to account for the following:
- Plans for holidays, vacations, and religious and cultural events
- Potential residential moves
- Transportation and communication between the parenting partners and between parent and child
- Anticipation of a need for modifications as the children mature
- Expectations and routines, such as keeping clothing, personal supplies and space for a child at each parent’s home
- Financial responsibilities for things not included in a child support order
- Accommodation for a child’s medical needs and home environment needs
Our attorneys at Messick Law, PLLC, have a great deal of experience helping parents create unique, creative custody and parenting time arrangements that take into account their specific situations, needs and family dynamics.
