Advocating For The Parenting Time That Is Best For Your Child
The Nebraska Parenting Act requires that parenting plans be developed either directly between parties and lawyers or through mediation or by the court. Your parenting plan will define the ongoing relationships that both parents have with your child(ren) after the divorce is finalized. At The Law Offices of James A. Adams PCLLO, I will fight for what is best for your child(ren) and for the parenting rights you are entitled to. Mediation is required in many cases. My precise and well-prepared evaluation of your unique situation will equip you with the tools necessary to assist you during mediation.
Personalized Service Based On Your Specific Needs
Parenting time (formerly called, “visitation”) is the amount of time each parent spends with his or her children following the divorce. The parenting plan can be modified if you or your child(ren) experience a substantial and material change in circumstances. It is important to ensure your parenting plan accounts for all the needs of your child and your own interests.
At The Law Offices of James A. Adams PCLLO, I have experience representing the needs of fathers in the creation of parenting plans. Even if you have not been as involved in your child’s life as his or her mother up to this point, you still have parenting rights and may even be better suited to raise your child(ren) than she is.
Preparing Effective Parenting Plans
An effective parenting plan also takes into account the needs, abilities and resources of parents. It is affected by a variety of factors, including residence, work schedules and relocation of parents.
Each parent in a divorce involving children is required to complete a parenting class. This parenting class will give you some guidance on how to manage the parenting of your child(ren) in the context of a divorce, paternity or modification proceeding.
I advocate for your position aggressively, and I will address many different factors in your parenting plan, including:
- Parents’ work schedules
- Weekday and weekend schedules for children and parents
- Day care and babysitting
- Rights of first refusal
- Pickup and drop-off times
- Travel schedules
- Holiday schedules
- Vacation planning
- Your child(ren)’s friends and familiar communities
- Emotional needs
- Educational needs
- Extracurricular activities
- Religious needs
- Health care needs
- Issues specific to military divorce
- Other special needs
Your child(ren)’s needs and interests can change based on their ages, their primary residence location and several of the issues listed above. It is important to give full consideration to all issues with an experienced attorney who is also familiar with the possible future modification of parenting plans and agreements.
