Developing a feasible parenting plan is a critical component of effectively resolving custody matters. Visitation should be tailored to fit your family’s unique circumstances. In many cases, it is beneficial for the children to spend substantially equal time with each parent, if possible. However, if such an arrangement is not feasible due to domestic violence, substance abuse or geographical distance, other alternatives must be explored.

Many parenting plans start off with a standardized schedule that allows the noncustodial parent every other weekend and certain dinner times, or something comparable. From this starting point, we can often negotiate additional visits or weekends, depending on the age of the child. Visitation is a modifiable part of the divorce decree, and a parent can petition for additional time later, particularly as young children get older.
The courts in Ventura County and across California want to see both parents working together, sharing parenting time and remaining focused on the child’s needs. It is important that both parents take a proactive role in the child’s life such as involvement in the child’s schooling, extracurricular activities, care and development.
Should your former spouse refuse to comply with a divorce decree or visitation arrangements set by the court, we can petition for an enforcement order or a child custody modification.
