Child Custody

To parents, issues of child custody are some of the most important issues in a divorce or legal separation. Typically, both parents want to continue being active, involved parents with a fair share of custody and parenting time.

At Clark Law Offices, we understand how important your children are to you, and we have the experience, tools and resources to help you navigate complex matters of child custody while maximizing your chances of success.

Parenting Plans In New Hampshire

The state of New Hampshire and its courts use the terms "parenting rights and responsibilities" to refer to child custody and visitation matters. Typically, courts favor parenting plans that allow both parents to have adequate time with their children.

Unmarried parents and married couples going through a divorce must have a parenting plan. This plan addresses decision-making responsibility for major decisions like nonemergency health care, education and religious training; day-to-day decision making; the routine weekly schedule; holidays and birthday schedules; three-day weekend schedules; vacation and summer schedules; residence for school purposes; transportation for parenting exchanges; supervised parenting (if necessary); access to medical and school records; phone contact between parents and children; written/email contact between parents and children; relocation; disputes over parenting issues; and other related issues.

Before making any decisions that could lead to a loss of parenting time or unfair division of parental responsibilities, contact us at 603-473-4338 to obtain important legal advice.

If a change in circumstances, such as a parent's relocation or child's preference, calls for an adjustment to an existing parenting plan, we can advise you regarding what courts look for in a modification and how best to proceed while protecting your interests.
