Divorcing parents can make use of creative schedules

40593588_S.jpgWhen Missouri parents divorce, figuring out a parenting plan can be both emotionally painful and logistically difficult. Each parent is often accustomed to having as much time as possible with their children, and when the marriage comes to an end, it can be complex to schedule a plan in which time with the children is shared between the parents' homes. Creating a child custody or visitation schedule can be further complicated by parents' work schedules, especially when both are engaged in full-time employment.

While there are a number of child custody options or visitation schedules that are particularly common after parents divorce, each family can make the right decision for their unique situation. Whether the divorcing parents have an amicable or more contentious relationship, it is important for them to work together with their family law attorneys to develop a parenting plan that fits with both parents' work schedules and fosters a close relationship with the children.

In a situation where one parent will be the primary custodial parent, the parenting plan can often be referred to as a visitation schedule. One of the more common visitation plans is for the children to spend every other weekend at the home of the non-custodial parent. This can be a great option for some families, but other choices can include weekday visitation blocks, additional weeknights with the non-custodial parent, a shifting schedule that accommodates different work times or other possibilities.

Divorce can be a difficult time for both parents and their children. A family law attorney may help a divorcing parent advocate strongly for their rights and interests as well as those of their children in matters related to child custody, child support, asset distribution and other key issues. A lawyer may be able to provide strong support for their client's rights as they work to achieve a positive outcome.
