Creating A Parenting Plan That Works

A parenting plan is a separate document from the divorce decree. This document outlines rules of conduct for divorced parents who have children under the age of 19. While the divorce decree may outline matters concerning who has child custody, the parenting plan gives more specific direction. For example, may one parent change the children’s school, doctor or church? Or who transports the children at the conclusion of the parenting time? And, will either parent be allowed to take the child out of the county or state without the other parent’s permission?

At Higgins Law, we have years of experience working with clients who face issues concerning child custody, parenting plans and visitation. Our firm is entirely focused on the area of divorce and family law. We provide straightforward advice so you can make an informed decision for yourself and your family. We can help explain the terms associated with the plan and how it will impact your future.
