What Parenting Plans Must Address
Co-parents are required to work together to create these parenting plans
along with their respective
family law attorneys. They then submit the plan to the court, where a judge will
make a final ruling on
support matters based on the plan and what the court feels is in best interest
of the child.
A thorough parenting plan should address:
- How child support will work between the parents
- When each parent will have access to the child (custody, visitation, holidays, etc.)
- How parental duties will be split between the two parents
- Any other factors that ensure the healthy development of the child
In cases where the court believes that the parents are unable to work together
to create this parenting plan, an appointed parenting coordinator may
be assigned to mediate the negotiation of the plan. However, even when
parents no not require court-appointed mediation, experienced and assertive
counsel is needed to make sure the parenting plan truly reflects the importance
of each parent's role in the life of the child.
