As we are once again celebrating our country’s birthday, let us revisit some wise words credited to one of our founding fathers. Benjamin Franklin once said, “Lost time is never found again”. And while this quote can be applied to many things, it is most relevant to those moments of our lives that if missed, can never be recovered or duplicated.

If you are a parent, you may have noticed that your child is seemingly always achieving another milestone. This may be learning to stand, starting school, losing a tooth or passing to another grade. And hopefully, you will be there to feel the pride of having helped them along the way. In fact, one of the things that is wonderful about having children is being able to share and celebrate the accomplishments that come with growth.

And this is why, if you and your spouse should decide that a divorce is the healthiest step you can take, you want to create a parenting plan that ensures you can continue to be part of your child’s many important moments. Your presence lets your child know that you care and that his or her accomplishments matter and are a source of pride. And such moments represent the most valuable parenting time imaginable.

We at the Marvin Law Office are well aware of the vital role that you play in your child’s life. And we are capable of providing services aimed at helping you continue to be there when he or she needs you. If you are in the process of trying to settle child custody issues, we would be interested in working with you to formulate an effective and fair parenting plan.
