New York City divorce lawyers Ethan Steward and Martin Mohr release a new article (https://www.newyorkfamilylawgroup.com/blog/should-our-parenting-time-schedule-be-adjusted-during-the-school-year/) explaining whether parenting time needs to be adjusted during the school year. The lawyer mentions that as kids grow, they need adequate time to bond with their friends and family members, and make room for their changing lifestyles. Divorced parents may need to reconsider their parenting time arrangement in order to accommodate extracurricular activities.
“Co-parenting almost always presents tough challenges, even when both parents are on the same page. It can be difficult to know what is best for a child, and how changing a parenting plan can impact their wellbeing. It doesn’t matter whether you’re on good terms with your ex-spouse or not; a parenting time schedule should be consistent throughout the school year,” says the New York City divorce lawyers.
The lawyers mention that maintaining equal access to both parents creates stability and establishes clear expectations for what each week will bring. Whether time is split between weekdays, weekends, or vacations, the child has a right to spend time with both parents.
Attorney Martin Mohr adds that a good parenting time schedule should not interfere with a child’s routine. If the child has a camping trip one weekend, the parents can forego the exchange until the next weekend. Understanding that the child needs to spend time with their peers, will help each parent encourage their child’s personal development.
“The distance your child has to travel for an exchange is something you should consider. If you live near your ex-spouse, you may have more opportunities to adjust the parenting time schedule. If the distance traveled for exchange is long, you have limited options for adjusting your schedule. You also need to consider the travel time from your house or your ex-spouse’s home to school or any other place your children spend their time,” says family law attorney Ethan Steward.
Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes the importance of having a skilled attorney when dealing with matters such as domestic violence. A skilled lawyer may be able to help the victim protect their rights and build a strong case against the abuser.
