What Is Parenting Time?

Parenting time is the term courts now use in place of child custody. It refers to the ability of a parent to make decisions about his or her child's upbringing, as well as referring to whom the child lives with and spends his or her time with. These were formerly referred to as legal custody and physical custody, respectively.

The Courts Look To Share Time And Decision-Making Power

The courts work from the presumption that the child will benefit from continuing to have both parents as a part his or her life. Barring situations where one parent is unfit, the court will work toward that goal. The ultimate goal of the court is to serve the best interests of the child. The court will craft a parenting plan that serves that goal.
