Parenting Time

Separation and divorce can impact your relationship with your children. The quantity and quality of time your children spend with each parent is important for a healthy post-separation and post-divorce relationship. Our lawyers work with clients to ensure their children are protected and their best interests are met.

We design a specific parenting plan that defines a clear schedule of the time children are to be in the care of each parent. The plan also addresses a parent’s right to participate in decisions relating to education, healthcare, religious upbringing, and financial support. At Lawrence Law, we strongly urge our clients to compromise, communicate, and cooperate as it pertains to issues relative to their children, and we are prepared to seek court intervention when the other party does not adhere to these protocols.
