Parenting Time

The days of one parent having primary custody and the other getting the occasional weekend are long gone in Michigan. There is a presumption under Michigan family law that it is in the best interest of the child to maintain a strong relationship with both parents.
Amicable parents are given great leeway to design a parenting time schedule that works best for them and their children. When disputes arise, it is important to have an attorney presenting your case and demonstrating why you deserve your fair share of parenting time. The number of overnights each parent has is also a crucial factor in determining how much child support, if any, will be paid by each parent.

Sole Custody vs. Joint Custody

For all intents and purposes there is no such thing as “sole custody”, at least in the way most people think of that term. There is legal custody – granting the right to make decisions about the child’s upbringing, medical treatment, school enrollment and other issues – and physical custody. Legal custody and physical custody are almost always shared.
