Handing Parenting Time Agreements in Troy, Michigan
In conjunction with establishing child custody in a divorce, a parenting time plan should be developed to help ensure both parents can maintain a meaningful relationship with their children. Unfortunately, this can be especially difficult for parents and can cause emotions to escalate. At the Law Offices of Ronald M. Bookholder, we offer experienced legal counsel tempered with sound judgment when working with the other side in establishing an amicable resolution.
An effective parenting plan takes into account the child's stage in life. What is appropriate for one child may vary greatly for another child. At the Law Offices of Ronald M. Bookholder, we encourage parents to take an active role in establishing parenting plans based on their children's best interests — parents know their children better than anyone else. Children may express a preference but the decisions are made by the adults and children should not be placed in the middle.
We are also committed to making sure both parents gain uninterrupted time with their children. Our firm'../CM/Custom/Attorneys.asp">family law attorneys try to make this happen through breaking parenting time negotiations into three segments, including:
- Parenting time during the school year
- Parenting time during holidays
- Parenting time during the summer
We also seek to establish parenting time agreements based on traditions and routines that have worked in the past. When parents are unable to come to an agreement, we have access to psychologists who can recommend what would be in their children's best interests. We also pursue resolution through mediation and collaborative law as an alternative to trial.
Don't Leave Your Decisions to the Courts
Intuitively, parents usually know what is best for their children. Unfortunately, when parents are unwilling to work with each other to make important decisions affecting their children, the courts are left to intervene. Family law judges are put at a disadvantage without a clear understanding of a family's dynamics and the children's unique needs. At the Law Offices of Ronald M. Bookholder, we believe parents should be constructive and creative in negotiating together with legal counsel to achieve an agreement in their children's best interests.
