Creating an Effective Parenting Plan
The most effective parenting plan does an excellent job of meeting the expectations of both parents, as well as providing a stable environment in which the child or children can learn to thrive. As your attorney, I can help guide you through an evaluation of your children's developmental stage, then outline a thorough parenting schedule that satisfies both parties.
In a parenting plan, two key elements of the children's lives are established:
- Legal custody: Outlines which parent will have the right to determine the children's medical care, education, and general welfare. Both parents can be granted the decision-making authority; however, this must be specifically outlined in the plan. Child support payment requirements will also be addressed in the plan.
- Physical custody: Determines where the children will live; or, in the case of shared custody, how long the children will spend time in each home. Factors taken into consideration when deciding this include children's school location, as well as the availability of each parent. Furthermore, parameters for contact with other relatives are also addressed.
