Visitation and Timesharing

If you are married with minor children and decide to divorce your spouse, you and your spouse will need to determine what your visitation and timesharing schedule will be with the children.  To that end, the court requires that the parents formulate a written parenting plan, which in part, sets forth the timesharing schedule each parent will have with the children.  A good parenting plan should always be fashioned in the best interests of the child.

If you are the unwed father of a child in a paternity case and you want a visitation and timesharing schedule with your child, or you are the mother who wants the father to have visitation with the child, you will also need a written parenting plan signed by both you and the other parent which provides a specific visitation and timesharing schedule.  The timesharing schedule shall detail who will have the child during specific weekdays, weekends and holidays.

It is important to detail as much as possible the timesharing arrangements, as failure to write a workable and effective visitation and timesharing plan will create problems for you, the other parent and your children going forward.  The best timesharing schedule is one in which you and the other parent can agree upon.  When parents cannot agree on a timesharing schedule, mediation usually results in an agreement.

In fashioning a timesharing schedule that best serves your interests and the interest of your children, we at the Law Office of Karen D. Faulkner, P.A., discuss with you both your lifestyle, and that of the other parent, your respective work schedules, your activities with the children, your holiday traditions, and the like.  You can trust the highly experienced Law Office of Karen D. Faulkner, P.A., to work diligently to obtain the best and most workable visitation and timesharing schedule for you.
