Nov. 8, 2018-Child should have as close to equal proportions of parenting time with both parents as is possible for that family
The alternative presumption is that the child should have as close to equal proportions of parenting time with both parents as is possible for that family, on a schedule that is individualized for each family. As we will see below, this approach is more in line with what we know about the effects associated with different amounts of parenting time. It is also coherent and preserves judicial discretion.
