What is a parenting plan?
A parenting plan is a legal document. You can either agree with the other parent on your parenting plan or if you can’t agree, then you’re gonna have to have a judge make a determination on how the parenting plan is gonna look like. The judge will make his or her determination based on the best interest of the child and the 20 factors under the best interest. Once that parenting plan is signed by the judge, that is a court order that has to be abided by both parents. A parenting plan will include a time-sharing schedule and the time-sharing schedule will detail exactly how the parents spend the time with the child, how the summers are spent and how the holidays are gonna be split between the parents. Another thing that the parenting plan will include is medical decisions and schooling. Those things are included in a parenting plan. If you have any questions, please talk to an attorney to figure out exactly how a parenting plan should look.
