Time with the Children after the Divorce is Final

When there are minor children in a marriage that’s ending, they become the most important concern.  The children’s ability to adjust is greatly effected by the level of cooperation between the parents, especially regarding the time each parent spends with the children. Historically, kids spent the majority of time at the home of one parent. This occurred as a result of the parents’ agreement or the judge’s order. However, the evolving trend is that many couples choose to share time with minor children more equally. A recent change in the child custody statute is resulting in more judges ordering equal timesharing between the parents.  Under both circumstances, a well thought out Parenting Plan established with the help of an experienced Orlando family law attorney will guarantee that the kids maintain the best possible relationship with both parents.

Consistent and frequent contact with both parents is in the best interest of the children.  Each parent must do their utmost to maintain this contact.  Coordinating schedules, informing each other of special events, and keeping in mind the normal routine of the children are ways in which to accomplish this.  When changes need to be made to an established schedule, each parent has a responsibility to notify the other as quickly as possible.  Cooperation in these and all matters regarding the children becomes paramount.  Kids are able to sense any anger or resentment between the parents, even unspoken.

The experience of a skilled Orlando child custody attorney is essential when parents are not able to agree to a Parenting Plan.  Even when parents have established a proposed plan, it’s important to have an attorney who is knowledgeable in family law review the plan to protect your parental rights.  Mr. Luther will ensure you are establishing a plan that’s in the best interest of both your children and you.
