  • Parenting Plan

    In any case where the court decides custody, the parents must file a Parenting Plan. A Parenting Plan sets out the details of how the parents will share the parenting responsibilities after a divorce or separation. If the parents can agree they can file a join parenting plan. If the parents don't agree on all the issues, each parent can file a separate parenting plan. A standard form is available for parties to use, but Parenting Plans should be individualized to consider the unique issues in every family. If there is any history of family violence in the relationship, the parent may need a Safety-Focused Parenting Plan. This parenting plan includes special considerations on visitation and safety where there is family violence. This plan should also be changed to meet the family's individual needs. Content Detail
