Family Lawyers Protecting Your Parenting Time and Visitation Rights
When a family transitions from one household to two, the reality is that both parents will have to give up time with the children. At Shimalla, Wechsler, Lepp & D’Onofrio, LLP, our attorneys promote open and amicable resolutions whenever possible to ease the strain and emotional trauma on everyone involved. When necessary, we have the skills and experience to protect your parental rights in court.
Providing Holistic Representation in Parenting Time Matters
Developing a sensible, workable child custody arrangement involves many factors. Clearly, a child custody plan will determine where children will live. A child custody plan also involves decisions about the child’s welfare, and how parents will share information and decision-making responsibility. Parenting time (referred to as “visitation” in the past) is the time that each parent physically spends with the children. Our attorneys know that not all families are the same, and we help clients fashion fair and detailed parenting plans to meet the unique needs of each family.
We also assist clients who seek to modify parenting time arrangements after the initial parenting plan was established. While custody agreements are not easily changed, modifications may be appropriate and necessary due to parental relocation, changes in a child’s needs, or other reasons. We counsel parents about their options and how to proceed when circumstances warrant a change.
Our lawyers have the compassion and understanding to appreciate how important the time spent with your children is to you. We are here to protect your parenting rights and preserve your relationship with your child.
