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 custody and 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.
