Parenting Time in Dakota County

Trusted Family Law Firm Helping Dakota County Clients Resolve Their Parenting Time Disputes

As parents negotiate the terms of their divorce, it’s important to establish a parenting time schedule that will cultivate meaningful relationships between parents and children. The goal of Howard Family Law, LLC is to help you determine an appropriate and reasonable schedule best suits your family’s needs.
A parenting schedule will help set specific boundaries and schedules that specify, among other things, your child’s summer schedule, school break schedule, holiday schedule, and special occasion schedules.

Customized Options

There are a number of options available to parents as they work to determine a parenting time schedule. Your imagination is the limit in terms of brainstorming options that might work for you. Courts will happily accept parenting schedules that parties create for themselves, as they understand that parents know what is best for their children. It’s important to recognize that a schedule that works for you will not necessarily work for the other parent, so your schedules will depend on various circumstances, including your child’s age, extracurricular activities, your work schedules, and other factors.

Parenting Time Schedules Always Evolving

Based on the fact that people’s lives and circumstances are always changing, you may need to adjust or modify a parenting time schedule. It is important that parents understand the need to be flexible as life is always full of surprises. School districts change, people move, a parent may lose a job, children join extracurricular activities, and circumstances change, so the established parenting time schedule may no longer work. If parents are not able to reach an agreement to modify the parenting time schedule, the issue will need to be presented to the court for judgment. No matter what your specific goals are regarding parenting time, Howard Family Law, LLC is here to help you achieve them.

When I started this journey that would prove to be one if the most difficult journeys thus far, I wasn’t sure where to start. After meeting with Lyndsay, I felt like I wasn’t alone in this mess and that I had someone who knew the ends & outs of this process on my side. Lyndsay made the process as easy and painless as possible considering the circumstances. She was very knowledgeable and eased my fears throughout. I would highly recommend Lyndsay and her office to anyone in need of a caring, efficient, and motivated attorney. Steve S.
