Spending time with your children, both on special outings and during regular daily activities, plays an important role in forming the basis for a strong parent/child relationship. Unfortunately, if you and the other parent are divorced or living apart from one another, you may miss out on simple pleasures such as sharing breakfast before work or school and tucking them in at night while reading a bedtime story. At Iafrate & Salassa, P.C., our experienced Macomb County parenting time attorneys know how important these shared moments are. We work hard on your behalf to establish parenting times that reflect both you and your child’s individual needs, protecting your rights as a parent and the bond that exists between you.
In disputes between parents over custody and time spent with children, protecting the best interests of the child in question is the court’s primary goal. Under Michigan child custody laws, the court is generally in favor of shared parenting arrangements.

At Iafrate & Salassa, P.C., we provide the professional legal representation you need in these negotiations, to help ensure your rights and the best interests of both you and your child are protected. Under Michigan parenting time guidelines, factors the court is likely to consider before issuing any orders in your case include:
