Divorce is never easy. When a married couple decides to split up, one of the most difficult and emotional aspects of the divorce is child custody and visitation rights. During the divorce proceedings, a parenting plan must be established to set specific guidelines for custody and visitation. Whether you are working cooperatively with your spouse to develop a parenting plan, or the two of you are in direct opposition, it is wise to have an experienced lawyer on your side to ensure your rights are properly protected.
