Child Custody and Visitation

In Minnesota, how to arrange child custody and visitation often depends on what is best for each family. The child’s best interests are top priority, but the parents’ desires and needs must also be woven into the plan. For example, not every noncustodial parent is able to have parenting time on weekends, perhaps because they work long hours on Saturdays and Sundays.

Many people believe that judges grant physical custody to too many mothers at the expense of fathers. That could be the impetus behind a bill in the Nebraska Legislature that would narrow the ability of family court judges to determine child custody based on the evidence before them.
