Creative Parenting Schedules Aligned With Your Needs

One of many reasons that people come to our firm is our ability to obtain custody agreements and possession schedules that balance their parenting goals with career obligations. For many professions such as physicians, nurses, police officers, attorneys, professional athletes, firefighters, airline pilots and other unique professional roles - a standard possession order simply does not work.

We work closely with our clients to find solutions that will involve:

  • Flexible visitation orders that must be revisited on a monthly or other periodic basis, once the noncustodial parent's schedule for that period is set.
  • Obtaining visitation rights during times when parenting can be the real focus, such as in a parent's off-duty or off-season time, on holidays and during vacations.
  • Ensuring that any special needs of the children are properly and effectively addressed.

In addition to helping parents with creative parenting schedules for professional reasons, our child custody attorneys also assist our clients with parenting schedules involving very young children (toddlers and infants under 3 years old). Our attorneys are adept at negotiating special visitation arrangements suited to these situations, sometimes relying on testimony from child psychologists and other specialized professionals to achieve the best possible results for your children and you.
