Make a plan to protect the best interests of your most precious valuables – your children.
When you have children with someone from whom you are separating or divorcing, there are many things you will need to consider before you and your former partner go your separate ways. You will need to develop an effective parenting plan to formalize how you and the other parent will raise your child/ren in the future.
Creating a Parenting Plan
Parenting plans can vary in the level of detail that needs to be included. Some of the major items you will need to include in your parenting plan are: decision-making responsibilities (custody), parenting schedule, holiday parenting schedule, travel, introduction of new partners, ability of one parent to move away with the kids, education, health, and religious decisions.
Designing a customized plan
Your lawyer can help you and your spouse to work together to arrive at a co-parenting plan which is customized with sufficient detail and flexibility to meet your family’s dynamics. Your lawyer will assist you to reduce the emotional and financial toll that separation can have on both parties and on the children. Our goal for each client is to effectively manage their emotions, reduce unnecessary delays, and realize a positive transition into their post-separation lives for them and their child/ren.
