Currently, the family courts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts presume that when children have continued relationships with both parents after a divorce they have the best chance to thrive. If the parents can agree to a parenting plan that works for both of them, generally it will often become a shared arrangement that works for the children involved as well.
At the law firm of Patrick M. Morris, Attorney at Law, in Sandwich, Massachusetts, we will help you put together an effective parenting plan that clearly identifies when you will spend time with your children and all the relevant terms. We craft these arrangements by always putting a premium on the best interests of your children, but that also encourages regular and meaningful involvement in the growth and development of your children.
Shared Parenting Time That Takes Into Account All Important Factors
With sound judgment and negotiating methods based on decades of family law experience, attorney Morris will work to create a parenting time schedule agreement that takes into account:
- Each parent's work schedule
- Availability of each parent
- Where each parent lives
- The location and distance of each child's educational institution
- Each child's daily schedule and extracurricular activities
- Each child's flexibility and ability to adapt to change
- The health and well-being of each child
We understand that, in today's world, where both parents often work and may travel for a job, the traditional visitation arrangements may not work. We take a creative approach, helping you identify alternatives that meet your needs and promote the best interests of your children. We also have extensive experience using mediation to arrive at fair and unique resolutions.
There are, however, times when a consensus regarding what is best for the children or a schedule that accommodates everyone involved cannot be reached. When this happens, Patrick M. Morris is a lawyer who has the courtroom confidence and knowledge to take your case before a judge in order to secure an equitable arrangement for you and your children.
Attorney Morris offers a free and thorough initial consultation to answer your questions and discuss your visitation options. To learn more about how he can help you, please contact our office in Sandwich, Massachusetts, today at 508-833-2622.
