What is a parenting plan?
A parenting plan is a written document that outlines the duties and responsibilities of parents after a divorce. A well-drafted plan will reflect the best interests of the child. Visit schedules, visitation rights and custody rights forms the foundation of a parenting plan. A parenting plan can be seen as a shared legal contract or mutual agreement between parents after a divorce.
