If you think women are having children later in life, you are correct. The US News & World Report published an article earlier this year on this issue and the benefits it sees in moms have children later in life. The link to the article is found here.
Setting aside the pros and cons of women waiting to have children, Minnesota law as it relates to custody, parenting time and other issue is the same no matter the age of both parents. Financial planning for things such as life insurance and estate planning, while they are difficult to think about, are even more applicable to help assure younger children of older parents are financially taken care of in the future.
For further information about custody and parenting time, please contact experienced family law attorney Jessica L. Sterle to schedule a consultation by calling (218) 722-2655.
