What is a Parenting Plan and What is its Purpose?
A parenting plan is simply an agreement you create with your spouse or partner about how you plan to co-parent your children after the divorce or separation. A parenting plan is very specific and amounts to basically setting up a complete schedule for you and your children. The plan should be very comprehensive, especially if the children are smaller to include schooling, medical issues, extracurricular activities, sporting, and other club endeavors as well as potential college. All these things need to be thought of and discussed in detail. A parenting plan governed specific parenting responsibilities including how visitation will be handled, overnights, who takes a child to the doctor and just got everything on an assignment regarding good parenting skills.
