What Is A Parenting Plan?

For lack of a better term, a parenting plan is essentially a custody agreement. It lays out the rules for how you will co-parent your children, who will be empowered to make decisions, where the children will spend their time, and more. You and the other parent will be required to attend a mandatory parenting education workshop that is designed to help both of you prepare for your new parenting situation.

The court will consider numerous factors when deciding whether to approve a parenting plan, including:

  • The stability of the child’s life
  • The home environment of each parent
  • The child’s relationship with each parent
  • Opportunities for the child with each parent
  • The child’s special needs
  • Any history of domestic violence or abuse

Our attorneys work with professional experts such as forensic psychologists and psychiatrists to demonstrate our clients’ parenting strengths and improve their negotiating position.
