Parenting time describes the time, frequency and duration that a child spends with a parent in order to maintain and promote a strong relationship with that parent. In most cases, it is best for the parents to determine an appropriate parenting time schedule for their child as it is they who are most familiar with their own circumstances as well as their child's needs. If a decision cannot be made by the parents, the Court will make a decision based on the best interests of the child and set a parenting time arrangement which promotes a strong relationship between the child and the parents.
Diane recognizes the importance of constructive communication between parents in order to reach a parenting time agreement that is beneficial for both parent and child. Unfortunately, this is not always possible and a skilled family law attorney is needed in order to help facilitate a resolution and protect your parental rights and the best interests of your child. With over two decades of family law experience, Diane is well qualified to do this even in the most challenging situations.
