In any divorce, it is important for parents to make sure their children are taken care of financially and emotionally. Parents often have different views on what is best for their children which can lead to drawn out and intense legal conflicts. As you begin to consider custody and shared parenting plans, it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced lawyer.

Shared Parenting Plans
In almost all cases, it is assumed that it is in the best interests of children to have both parents involved in their lives. In an uncontested divorce, a shared parenting plan will be part of the divorce agreement. In a litigated divorce, a judge will have the final say on the parenting time, with the goal likely being to achieve as close to a 50/50 split as possible.
In the past, it was assumed that mothers would have primary physical custody with fathers being the secondary custodian, but this is no longer the case as fathers’ rights have come a long way in recent years. Mothers and fathers are viewed as having equal rights to custody, and final decisions are made based on what is best for the children.
