Navigating parenting time matters requires compassionate support and expert legal guidance. At INB Family Law LLP, we understand the importance of fostering meaningful relationships between children and their parents. Our experienced parenting time lawyers provide personalized representation to ensure fair and appropriate parenting time arrangements.

Understanding Parenting Time

Parenting time, also known as access or visitation, refers to the time each parent spends with their child following separation or divorce. In Ontario, the court encourages both parents to maintain strong relationships with their children, prioritizing the best interests of the child. Our knowledgeable lawyers provide guidance on legal standards, factors considered by the court, and strategies for maximizing parenting time.

Types of Parenting Time Arrangements

Parenting time arrangements can vary depending on the unique circumstances of each family. Common types of parenting time arrangements include:

Shared Parenting:

Both parents share significant time with the child, promoting ongoing involvement and cooperation.

Sole Parenting:

One parent has primary responsibility for the child's care and decision-making, while the other parent has scheduled visitation.

Supervised Parenting:

Parenting time is supervised by a third party or professional to ensure the safety and well-being of the child.

Virtual Parenting:

Non-residential parents maintain contact with the child through virtual means, such as video calls or emails.

Our lawyers assist in developing parenting time schedules that prioritize the child's well-being and support the parent-child relationship.

Factors Considered in Parenting Time Determinations

When determining parenting time arrangements, the court considers various factors to ensure the child's best interests are met. These factors may include:

  • The child's age, needs, and preferences (if mature enough to express them)
  • The physical and mental health of each parent
  • The history of caregiving and involvement in the child's life
  • The ability of each parent to provide a stable and nurturing environment
  • The willingness of each parent to facilitate the child's relationship with the other parent
  • Our lawyers advocate for parenting time arrangements that reflect these considerations and promote the child's overall well-being.

Modifying Parenting Time Orders

Parenting time orders may need modification over time due to changes in circumstances or the child's needs. Our lawyers assist in filing for modifications and advocate for arrangements that reflect the current circumstances and best interests of the child. We ensure that parenting time orders are fair and equitable for all parties involved.
