We currently have a shared parenting agreement. I have him twice a week after school until 8 and every other weekend. We split all holidays and breaks from school. But the magistrate said she still considers it basically standard visitation, and the mother the primary guardian or custodial parent,... Read more »
Yes, you should file to modify parenting time. It would be best to have an attorney assist you in how best to present your arguments. You will probably want to ask the magistrate or judge to interview him on what time he’d like with you.

Majority of court-appointed attorneys are very good. They often handle a lot of cases so they know what the judges find persuasive.
