Parenting Time Vs. Legal Decision-Making

Parenting time is NOT to be confused with legal decision-making. Legal decision-making, formally child custody, is the right to make decisions about a child's health, education, and religious upbringing. Legal decision-making can be sole (one parent only) or joint (both parents together). Please visit our legal decision-making tab to learn more.

Parenting time is based on factors that include, but not limited to:

  • Each parent's work schedules
  • The child or children's schedules
  • Ages of each child
  • Relationship between the parent and child prior to separation
  • Geographic distance between the parents

Determining the time your child or children will spend with each parent can be challenging. You may be used to having them all the time and can't imagine it being any different.
