A parenting plan is a court order awarding the parental rights and responsibilities for one’s children. The purpose of a parenting plan is to address all the issues involved in the child’s welfare, including the allocation of health, education, religion, extracurricular activities, and parenting time.
When the parents of a child have a cordial relationship and communicate well with each other, they may be able to develop a parenting plan to determine the allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time for their child. However, not all parents can come to mutually agreeable terms.
