Writing Effective Parenting Plans
Parents are required to create parenting plans that detail how the parties will work together to raise their children. The basic issues the plan must cover include:
- The residential time the child will spend with each parent
- Which parent will make major decisions for the child
- How the parents will resolve disagreements
A thorough parenting plan will include information about holidays, vacations, extracurricular activities, religious instruction and relocation requests. Parents may also discuss how they will address social issues such as driving, working and dating.
Thinking ahead about the needs of growing children is an important part of a complete parenting plan. It can result in fewer arguments and reduce the need to modify the plan in the future.
We have extensive experience helping parents write parenting plans that work for the whole family. We can also represent you in custody mediation sessions.
