Child Custody, Parenting Time, Visitation

Determining the Best Interests of the Child

Uppermost in every good parent's mind is, “What is best for my child?” Parents of the same child may have very different ideas about what is best – resulting in very different ideas about custody and parenting time.

In some divorces, the parents agree on most aspects of custody and parenting time. Agreeing to the details is relatively easy for them. But in many other cases, the parents are in complete disagreement. In both situations, it is important to have a family law attorney experienced in custody agreements and custody disputes to work through the details. If the decision is left to the court, the court – not the parents – will determine what is in the child's best interests.

Talk to a lawyer about your family and especially about your children and what you believe is best for them. Learn the legal terms and your rights.

  • What is joint custody? Shared custody?
  • What is sole custody? Legal custody? Physical custody?
  • How do parents develop a workable parenting plan?
  • What if circumstances change after the divorce and custody needs to be reviewed?

The decisions you and your spouse make about custody and parenting time are critical to the future of your restructured family. It is essential to have a lawyer who understands the issues and Minnesota law, and how they affect your unique family circumstances.
