Safety-focused Parenting Plan

Authored By: Georgia Legal Services Program® LSC Funded

When the court decides child custody, the parents must file a Parenting Plan to set out the details of how the parents will share the parenting responsibilities after a divorce or separation. 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.
