My parenting schedule order does not imply nor entail anything

This answer was rated:

My parenting schedule order does not imply nor entail anything being "temporary". Does that mean this is the final order? My divorce is still on going but I have heard others say temporary orders usually become permanent in the final decree. No custody has been awarded yet to either side

Thank you for your question. I am a New York licensed attorney. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

A parenting schedule is never really "permanent". The parenting plan is always open for court modification based upon a change in circumstances affecting the children.

However usually when a parenting plan indicates that it is "temporary", it means that it is a temporary placement until an upcoming hearing date.

I would be glad to continue our conversation and respond to any follow-up questions that you may have.
