Your Family Law Attorney Assists You With Different Forms of Visitation Schedules
In the California Courts, as it is in most other custody courts across the United States, the physical custody of a child or children can either be joint (which is where it is arranged that their time with either parent will be divided equally) or primary (also called sole custody, and is when a child or children live with one of their parents the majority of the time.
There is a tool that I would like to share with you here on my blog, and it is to me one of the most helpful for parents who have been through painful separations or divorce.
This link from Custody X Change is where you can create a parenting schedule that you and your ex can both agree on with the click of a button. When you click on the tab that reads “Make My Parenting Schedule Now”, it will take you to a page with two sections – one will be for parents, and the other for legal professionals like me, your Sacramento family law attorney.
