   Michigan Parenting Time Guidelines

Parenting time is the time that a child spends with his or her parent. A child needs both parents' affection and support. When the parents do not live together, separate parenting time lets each parent continue to develop a strong relationship with the child.

The Michigan One Court of Justice, Friend of the Court bureau has resources available to help with parenting time issues.
