What is a Parenting Plan

A parenting plan is a contractual agreement that parents create when they separate or divorce explaining how the parents agree to raise their children while living separately.In other words, a parenting plan is a custody and visitation agreement that details how time between the two parents will be spent and at what interval, and how decisions will be made regarding the welfare and activities of their children.

Child Custody

During a divorce or separation, one of the more difficult aspects to handle is child custody. Because the household is being broken up, and the parents will be living in two separate homes, it’s important to come to an agreement regarding who has custody of the children and if the custody is shared, how.
