What Is a Parenting Plan?

A parenting plan is a written agreement on the schedule of time that children will spend with both parents. It also includes details on how decisions will be made regarding your children’s health, education, and welfare in the future. This agreement is signed by both parents and the judge, and then filed with the court.

A written parenting plan tells you, your children, and your co-parent what to expect on a daily basis – thus, resulting in fewer conflicts about parenting time. It is important to note that in order for such plans to really work, both parents must communicate and be flexible, especially when a change needs to be made at the last minute. Remember, particular needs of your children will vary depending on the circumstances.

Make sure your plan includes physical and legal custody issues, such as:

  • Where the children live
  • How they spend their time
  • Where they go on weekends
  • How they spend their holidays
  • Transportation to and from each parent
  • Which schools / day cares they will attend
  • Information regarding medical and emergency care
