Monmouth County Parenting Time

Determining Time Spent with Your Children

Parenting time, which had previously been called visitation, is the time the noncustodial parent spends with the child. The state of New Jersey considers this a critical element of child custody arrangements. In most cases, it is in the best interest of children to have two parents involved in their lives. What that involvement looks like can vary dramatically from case to case, and it depends on many practical considerations.

At the Law Office of Steven P. Monaghan, LLC, our Monmouth County custody lawyers work with you to make certain your right to raise your child is protected. When you choose our law firm, you can benefit from the experience of a team led by a lawyer who has been listed in Super Lawyers year after year.

How Much Parenting Time Will You Have?

Many factors must be taken into consideration when working out parenting time schedules. Certainly, each parent's schedule plays a role. The child's age is a major issue. A parenting time schedule for an infant is likely to look substantially different than a parenting plan for a teenager. We make certain all factors are taken into account.

Plans can be as complex and creative as necessary. Holidays and vacations may need to be addressed in unique ways. Our lawyers do not believe in one-size-fits-all parenting plans or child custody arrangements. Instead, we will work with you to learn about your situation and pursue the plan that makes the most sense.

Parenting Plans and Shared Parenting

In some cases, the noncustodial parent may have a parenting plan that includes alternate weekends. Perhaps you would like closer to a 50-50 split with the other parent. Shared parenting arrangements like these are possible. We can pursue them when appropriate.
