In recent years, it has become more common for divorced parents to each have substantial overnight care and placement of their marital children. The older model of the children just seeing dad every other weekend is becoming less common. Therefore, both mothers and fathers in a divorce should be shifting their expectations about placement arrangements to more of a shared parenting arrangement. Even if the parents can't get along with each other, they should each realistically assess what placement arrangement is in their children's best interests, and that is often a more equally divided amount of time with each parent. The lawyers at Wassel, Harvey & Schuk, LLP can help you determine realistic goals for your specific case, then achieve those goals.
