PARENTING TIME DISPUTES
HIGHLAND LAW is a law firm in Surrey, British Columbia.
In child custody matters, there are often disagreements about parenting time. Parenting time refers to the amount of time each parent spends with the child. When a parent is spending time with the child, he or she will be responsible for the child’s care and supervision and will make decisions about the child’s daily activities.
If you are having a parenting time dispute, the experienced family lawyer at Highland Law can help.
Factors that might affect parenting times
Parenting time may be shared equally between the parents or the child may live with one parent, while the other has visitation rights. In other cases, one parent might not have any access to the child. Family law dictates that decisions about parenting times must be made with the best interest of the child in mind.
Here are some factors that may affect parenting time:
- The parents’ wishes
- The child’s wishes
- The physical and mental health of each parent
- How the child interacts with each parent and extended family members
- The child’s likely adjustment to a new home or school
- Parents’ history of involvement in the child’s life
- Parents’ ability to place the child’s needs above theirs
