Big news for fathers who are in the middle of custody battles:
visitation laws are now considered
time sharing laws.
Time sharing refers to the amount of time that you will be allowed to spend
with your child. Depending on your
child custody agreement, as confirmed by a court, the amount of time that you spend
could also affect your
child support payments. Although you may be hurt by the necessity for divorce, it is
important to take into consideration what will be best for your child.
Once a visitation schedule is drafted, be sure to hire a family law attorney
to review it. It can be difficult to change an order once it has been
approved by a judge, so double-check to ensure that you are satisfied
with the arrangement. If both parties do decide to change the plan later
on, you must visit the court once again to get it approved.
