Parenting Plans Following a Divorce

Maitland Divorce Lawyer Helping Negotiate & Draft Agreements

During divorce proceedings, individuals who have children together will likely need to create a parenting plan that is agreed to by both parties and then approved by a court. If the parents are not able to come to an agreement, the court then has the legal authority to establish the plan. Parenting plans lay out time-sharing schedules, education for the children, health care, and more factors that are related to the well-being of the children.

While creating a parenting plan may be difficult to do following a divorce, it is necessary and can help prevent major problems in the future. Our Maitland divorce attorney is experienced in all aspects of parenting plans, and can help you negotiate terms, draft the arrangement, and do whatever else is necessary to fulfill the requirements.

Parenting plans that seek to be approved by the court must have, at a minimum:

  • A detailed description of how the parents will share and be responsible for daily tasks that are associated with the children's upbringing
  • Specifics on time-sharing arrangements
  • A designation of who will be responsible for health care, educational matters, and other activities
  • The methods and technologies that will be used to communicate with the children on a regular basis

Let Us Help You Start Creating Your Arrangement Today

Because family law courts in Florida want the best interests of the child to be at the forefront, both parents are often encouraged to share responsibility for their children as equally as possible. However, in some circumstances, it is best to grant sole responsibility to one parent in the parenting plan.
