Southfield Parenting Time Lawyer

We Are a Family Law Firm That Cares

At The Law Office of Jeff Perlman, we know how important it is that you get dedicated time with your child, especially after a divorce. We also know how challenging it can be for the non-custodial parent to get regular time with their child. Our parenting time attorney in Southfield has been handling these kinds of family law cases for years and can help you fight for the time you need to effectively parent your child. Whether you are newly separated and struggling to come up with an initial visitation agreement or you need to modify an existing visitation schedule, we can help.

For a free consultation with our custody and parenting time lawyer, call (248) 290-8099.

Parenting Time vs. Custody

There are two different kinds of custody: physical custody and legal custody. Physical custody establishes which parent your child lives with, while legal custody establishes which parent has the right to make important decisions regarding their child, such as medical and educational decisions. It is common for one parent to have sole physical custody, while both parents share legal custody.

The non-custodial parent may then have parenting time or a visitation order from the court, ensuring that they have access to their child so that they may maintain their relationship with them. Parents may draft the visitation schedule together or allow the court to order a specific visitation schedule.

Factors the court considers when creating a visitation or parenting schedule include:

  • How far apart the two parents live
  • The age and number of children affected
  • The current state of the relationship between the non-custodial parent and child
  • The current state of the relationship between the parents
  • Any record of abuse or domestic violence

Common visitation schedules may see parents alternating weekends with their children, as well as alternating holidays each year. Every family is unique, and while the courts have standard parenting time schedules that may be used, there is also the possibility of specialized plans being created as needed.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Even in a best-case scenario, in which parents easily and amicably communicate with each other, it is a good idea to consult an experienced family law attorney when working out a parenting-time schedule. A capable lawyer can ensure that your parental rights are being protected, can help identify potential grey areas that need to be cleared up, and can help you if issues arise in the future and the schedule needs to be amended.
