Maintaining a close and positive relationship with children is the biggest concern for most parents who are going through divorce. The experienced family law attorneys at Lofaro & Headley, LLC, in Hoboken, New Jersey, help their clients accomplish this by developing parenting plans that become part of the court-approved settlement.
Parenting plans address specifics such as when your children will be in your care, participation in extracurricular activities, how religion will play a role in your children's lives, and other rights and responsibilities for each parent.
Parenting plans are separate from custody agreements. The focus is on parenting time and not on custody labels. They can be created directly between the parents, with the assistance of counsel, or through mediation.
Our Jersey City Parenting Plan Lawyers Work For You
Your relationship with your children is too important to risk with inexperienced legal representation. At Lofaro & Headley, we take the time to fully understand your goals regarding parenting so that we can confidently advocate on your behalf, whether that is in mediation sessions or in family court.
Parenting plans can be developed or changed long after a divorce settlement. If you have been absent from your children's lives and want to play a more active role, we can help you seek a modification that will provide you a bigger presence in your children's lives. We will work with you to help build a strong case for a parenting time modification.
Modifications also can be used to protect your children if proof exists that they are at risk of being abused or if the other parent is otherwise unfit to care for your children.
