Understanding Visitation/Parenting Time

As a child grows and matures into adulthood, it is important that he or she has a meaningful and stable relationship with both parents. If the parents decide to divorce, it is crucial that they consider the needs of the children and establish a clear, comprehensive parenting time agreement.

At Berman Law Center, P.C., our Portland visitation lawyers are familiar with parenting research studies and remain abreast of changing trends. Unless there are dangerous circumstances involved, children benefit from time spent with both parents. It is our goal to help parents design a plan that focuses on the best interests of the child, but also takes into account the needs and goals of the parents. Trust our experience to guide you through this potentially daunting task.

What A Parenting Plan Covers

Parenting time covers numerous factors, including:

  • The number of overnights the child will spend with each parent over the course of a year
  • Weekends, holidays and school breaks such as spring break and winter vacation
  • Transportation of children to and from parenting time and exchange protocols
  • Communication between a child and a parent when a child is with the other parent
  • Child safety issues

Do not hesitate to contact an experienced Oregon family law attorney if you have questions regarding child custody, modifications or parenting time.
