Minneapolis Attorney for Visitation and Custody Issues

Helping You Create a Smooth Transition for Your Children

Divorce is often most difficult for children. Their parents' attention is focused on the details of the divorce, and frequently they become pawns in an uncomfortable chess game. It is important to note that the state considers what is in the best interests of the children to be paramount when making decisions in custody and parenting time cases.

Each parent is entitled to time with his or her children. However, joint custody does not necessarily mean the children will spend 50 percent of their time with each parent. Weekly activities, school, friends and other family members all need to be taken into account. It is less stressful on a child to have a regular routine that is as close to what life was like before the divorce as possible. Our holistic approach to the law allows us to work with you and your spouse to find a good balance for your lives and your children's lives.

Family Law Attorney Helping Families With Parenting Time Issues in the Twin Cities

We will sit down with you to create a parenting plan that takes into account your schedule and your child's schedule. The more cooperative you and your co-parent can be when separating your lives and your time with your children, the more likely the state will be to accept your parenting plan. Factors that are important to consider are:

  • Who was the primary caregiver before the divorce?
  • Which parent lives in the child's current school district?
  • How many days a week is it reasonable for the child to spend with each parent?
  • What parts of the old schedule can be translated into the new one?

One parent having a minimum of 25 percent of the parenting time is currently the presumption of what is in the child's best interests and 45 percent is considered to be "equal."
