Whether you’re a divorcing couple or an unmarried couple who’s separating, debates over child custody can seem endless and daunting. No one wants to consider losing time with their child, but for many couples, the best solution truly is to separate, leaving no choice but to share parenting time. So how can you come to an agreement that’s legally equitable and feels fair to both parties, as well as to your child? Often times, couples feel they need to battle in court to get the most amount of time with their child as possible. This method is neither healthy for the child nor conducive to a good relationship between two parents. Instead, we recommend seeking help from a child custody mediator. At Kallemeyn and Kallemeyn, we’re child custody experts who have been practicing family law for years, helping solve custody issues all over Minnesota, including the Twin Cities and northern suburbs.
