Making a Parenting Plan that Works for You and Your Child

Parents have the right and responsibility to play an active and engaged role in their child life. Under Michigan child custody laws, parenting time can be divided between the parents as part of a joint custody arrangement, or by awarding primary custody to one parent while the other has visitation. The arrangements may be negotiated through your attorney or at mediation proceedings, or they may be decided at a hearing before the judge in which a court order is issued. Factors the judge will likely consider in issuing a parenting time order include:

  • The age of the child;
  • The relationship between the child and each parent;
  • The parent’s proven ability to meet the child’s needs;
  • Any allegations of abuse, neglect, or other behavior, which could put the child in jeopardy.

At Iafrate & Salassa, P.C., our Oakland County parenting time attorneys will carefully work with you on your case, gathering evidence needed to support a parenting plan that works for both you and your child. Under Michigan parenting time guidelines, other issues addressed when determining parenting time include arrangements for pick up/drop off and responsibility for any transportation costs, the rights to visit the child at school and during school-related activities, and dividing time spent over holidays, school breaks, birthdays, and other special occasions.
