Parenting Plan

At Richardson Law, we understand the importance you place on your children’s well-being and your parenting time with them. Courts in Massachusetts always decide child custody and parenting time matters in accordance with what they perceive to be in “the best interest of the child.” In many cases, this means:

  • Joint legal custody in which the parents share important decisions regarding the child’s health, education and other matters

  • Primary physical custody for one parent with parenting time rights granted to the other parent
