The attorneys at McCarten Law Firm understand the need for non-custodial parents to continue a meaningful relationship with their children following a divorce or break-up. Although Minnesota law provides a presumption that the non-custodial parent will receive 25% parenting time, the court has discretion to increase or decrease the percentage of parenting time depending on the circumstances of each case.
If parents agree on a parenting time schedule, parenting time agreements can be created by the parties in order to avoid a court’s decision. Parenting time schedules are typically dependent on the age of the child(ren) and the ability of the parents to communicate and co-parent.

The attorneys at McCarten Law Firm can explain your options regarding parenting time and the pros and cons of a parenting time agreement versus a contested court proceeding. Our attorneys strive to help you create a parenting time schedule that is uniquely tailored to the needs of your family.
