They will examine the family dynamic, past performance of the parent who has been caring for the kids, and any other factors such as substance abuse or violence. We understand what the courts will look at and how the judges are most likely to rule. No matter how challenging your situation may be, we will aggressively stand up for your interests.
Grand Rapids Parenting Time Attorney
In Michigan, child visitation is technically referred to as “parenting time.” This refers to the amount of time that the noncustodial parent is given to see the child(ren). A common situation for visitation is every other weekend with the noncustodial parent and certain weekdays/holidays. A parenting-time schedule can be created to meet your child’s best interests, so it is imperative you work with a lawyer who understands these guidelines. We have the experience and knowledge necessary to achieve results that are in your family’s best interests.
