Factors in Building a Parenting Plan

When coming up with a parenting plan, the courts look at factors such as:

  • Availability
  • Historical caretaking functions
  • Stability

With a firm grasp of these factors and how the court uses them, I can aggressively seek solutions to parenting plan and custody issues. I will also advise you on how your parenting plan may affect the amount of child support paid by the parent who does not have custody.

Getting the Best for Your Children

The most important aspect of making sure your children get the best deal possible is separating out the issues that are more between the spouses, and those that really are about the children. Once we get weed out of those personal arguments between you and your ex-spouse, most divorcing couples really have good ideas about what’s best for the kids.

Many lawyers don’t know the difference between these types of arguments, but 10 years of experience has taught me how to get the children’s interests into the forefront in every divorce.
