Parenting Time Factors

The court will ultimately decide on parenting time based on the best interests of the child. Studies have shown there are adverse consequences to children lacking a relationship with both parents. The goal of any parenting time plan should be to ensure the continuance of a relationship between children and parents and encourage parental responsibility.

The length, frequency, and type of parenting time depend on these factors:

  • Special circumstances or needs of the child
  • Age of the child
  • Likelihood of abuse or neglect during parenting time
  • Risk of abuse of a parent during parenting time
  • Inconvenience to or burdensome impact on the child traveling to and from parenting time
  • Parental ability to exercise parenting time in accordance with a court order
  • A parent’s record of failing to exercise reasonable parenting time
  • A parent’s intent to retain or conceal the child from the other parent
  • Any other relevant factors

Structured parenting time can often help parents who work poorly together. Additionally, the court will decide on the division of transportation, costs, restrictions on the presence of 3rd parties during visitation, requirements for timeliness, and conditions requiring notification if parenting time will be late or not occur.
