Experienced Roseville Lawyers

When parents in Placer County have joint physical custody, they will each have possession of the child for a specified period of time. However, the time is rarely split perfectly down the middle 50/50. Instead, parents should develop a very detailed parenting plan which will allocate the children’s time during the summer and school year, including on holidays and birthdays. If parents can agree on this parenting plan, they can submit it to the judge for approval; otherwise, a judge will have to choose between competing parenting plans based on the best interests of the child.
