Agreements To Spend Time With Your Children

One of the biggest concerns for any parent during a divorce is spending time with their children. Therefore, creating a parenting time schedule is crucial to ensure you get the maximum time with your children. Children flourish when they can have an ongoing relationship and emotional support from both parents. Positive parent-child relationships help create healthy emotional and social development in children. Because it is beneficial to children to have healthy relationships with both parents, both parents must cooperate when developing these agreements.

Factors That Play a Role in Parenting Time

  • Child’s safety
  • Child’s age
  • The past relationship between parent and child

Typical Parenting Time Outcomes in Minnesota

The non-custodial parent is generally entitled to a rebuttable presumption of 25% of the parenting time as a minimum. Every other weekend and one weekday is a standard schedule. When creating a parenting time schedule, the distance between parents’ houses may play a role. For example, it wouldn’t make sense for the child to switch parents in the middle of the week. The parents are responsible for creating times and places for visitation. The court will give specific dates and times if the parents can’t agree. Working out a parenting time agreement during custody proceedings that provides you with quality time with your child is a high priority for your family attorney. An experienced family law attorney will seek the maximum parenting time for his/her client.
