Winter Park Parenting Plan Attorney

Florida Family Lawyer Helping Clients with Custody Agreements

A well-thought-out parenting plan is an essential part of a custody agreement between divorcing couples with children. Ideally, parents are able to come to an agreement themselves, and the parenting plan is written up by the parties’ lawyers and then approved by the court. In situations where parents cannot come to terms about time-sharing schedules, health care, education, and other essential characteristics of the parenting plan, a judge will have to create the plan for the parents. For assistance with your parenting plan during divorce, or for help with a modification to an existing parenting plan, it is in your best interest to work with an experienced Winter Park parenting plan attorney. The lawyers at The Troum Law Firm P.A. will help you establish a parenting plan that most closely meets your and your child’s best interests.

The Basics of a Parenting Plan

Parenting plans have to meet a few minimum requirements. In order to be approved by the court, your parenting plan must include the following methods and agreements:

  • Time-sharing agreement specifics;
  • How the parents will share responsibility for daily tasks related to the child’s upbringing;
  • Responsibilities regarding health care, education, childcare, and other childhood activities; and
  • Technologies and methods used for communicating with the children on a normal routine.

A parenting plan can include much more than the above criteria. For example, a parenting plan can include an agreement about not using the children as go-betweens when the parents are feuding—after all, being a “messenger” is one of the hardest parts of divorce for children, according to Kids Health. The agreement can include virtually anything the parents agree to put in it. You may want to consider some of the following elements, such as vacation time, summer activities, bedtime schedules and household rules, how parents should share information, a method for solving problems and disputes, babysitting agreements, how much time is required for changes in parenting schedules, religion, extracurricular activities, time-sharing with grandparents and other relatives, safety requirements (such as wearing a helmet while riding a bike or using a child seat in the car), diet and nutrition, and much more.

Creating a Parenting Plan That Will Prevent Difficulties in the Future

One of the biggest issues faced by divorced parents is when the other changes the schedule last minute, according to the Huffington Post. A parenting plan helps create order, consistency, and routine—things that children, as well as parents, need in order to thrive. Not only does a well-drafted parenting plan keep both parents on task and from changing things last minute, but it should provide a path for conflict resolution, and lay out how parents will negotiate and make compromises with each other when the original time-sharing schedule needs to be changed. A parenting plan helps parents avoid future conflicts, creating a better environment for children.
