Families facing divorce often encounter a huge challenge negotiating a parenting plan that meets the unique needs of that family. We completely understand that every family is different and every parenting plan should reflect those differences. We have years of experience writing parenting plans that will take your family through the upcoming years while still meeting the court’s criteria for a parenting plan. Patience and creativity are skills that help our clients in reaching their goals in this regard.

Residential Schedules and Visitation

A parenting agreement is a requisite when the parties have minor children. Whether one parent makes all the decisions or both parents agree to jointly make decisions, a residential schedule is ultimately reduced to a written document and and approved as a court order. These days, the courts are aware that both Mom and Dad are equally important to the development of children. No longer are most men relegated to being weekend dads. Changing from a one home family to a two home family can be incredibly stressful for everyone concerned. We will help you design a parenting plan that will creatively address everyday scheduling issues in a parent/child relationship: where the child spends weekends, who picks up the child from school on which day — where the child spends vacation and holidays.

Psychological research shows that predictability is important for children. We keep up-to-date with recent psychological literature so we can help you devise a plan that will be most beneficial for your children. We often work closely with child development experts to decide what is best for your family.

It is important that a residential schedule is relatively simple and spares the child from unnecessary stress and anxiety. 

Virtual Visitation

A new concept known as “virtual visitation” is now being used by parents and children who are separated by distance. In these cases, parents and children will set aside time to communicate on Skype and other Internet tools.  Sheryl Rae Ghezzi is dedicated to helping clients use the latest technology to maintain connections with their children.
