PARENTING TIME AND VISITATION

How is Parenting Time Established?

No matter what other effects a divorce may have, promoting an active, nurturing relationship between parents and children will always be an important goal.

Attorney O’Sullivan respects that goal and provide parents in Fairfield County and throughout southern Connecticut with the quality legal advice and representation they need to accomplish it. If you have concerns regarding this issue, talk to me.  I am here to help.

What Does Parenting Time Include?

When children's future schedules are decided, minimizing the potential for conflict between the parents is always a good thing. Because of that, it is wise to make the parenting time plan as specific as possible.

Some of the various details Attorney Christine O’Sullivan can help you address include pick-up and drop-off times, transitions, weekends, holidays, school release days, summer vacations and school activities, and how contingencies like illnesses or other unpredictable events will be managed.

Supervised Visitation

If one parent has a history of drug or alcohol abuse, domestic violence or any other type of conduct that's likely to be detrimental to the children, the court may, in extreme cases, deny visitation altogether. However, recognizing that children benefit tremendously from having relationships with both parents, courts will more often order what is known as therapeutic supervised visitation (TSV).
