In other posts, we discussed the first, second, and third tips that you should follow when preparing to work with a lawyer for your child custody and/or visitation issue in court. Let’s go on to the fourth tip.
Have a plan. If you want more time with your child, make sure you think about how much more time, and when you propose to have that extra time. Saturdays? Tuesday nights for dinner? What about transportation? How do you propose the transportation should be worked out? If you or the other parent is unavailable to provide transportation, is there anyone else you do or do not trust to provide the transportation? For example, if the other parent’s sister has a suspended license due to a DUI, you know that you do not want her to be driving with your child in the car. You might even get a calendar of the rest of the year and mark all days that you want to have your child. You can easily find online yearly calendars by doing a search in any search engine. Not only will this help you plan out your ideal custody and visitation schedule, but it will also help you and your lawyer calculate child support. This is because child support is often calculated yearly in order to get the monthly amount.
