Parenting plans say where your children live. The plan should be simple and in the best interests of children. The plan should also be in the best interests of parents.
A parenting plan should have both parents actively involved in your child’s life. Ideally, you both throw the plan in the trash and continue doing what’s right for your children. If parents don’t agree on a plan, the court will often impose the standard plan. That’s where a parent sees their child only every other weekend and every other holiday.
Parenting shouldn’t be complicated. Responsible parents hire experienced lawyers to negotiate common sense plans that promote the best interest of the family.
