The Importance of Having a Parenting Plan in Your Divorce

Any divorce with children involved must always consider the best interests of the children. Therefore, Florida law urges parents to reach a mutual and amicable decision. One of the requirements includes a parenting plan. A parenting plan is an important document that outlines the duties and responsibilities of each parent in raising their child during the dissolution of a marriage.

Since this is a legally binding document, hiring a divorce lawyer Boca Raton is highly recommended. Parenting plans are very subjective and will vary from one case to another. However, some of the important issues covered in every parenting plan are:

Parental responsibility: This is a description of how both parents plan to share the responsibility of daily tasks in raising the child, such as childcare, healthcare, discipline, religious upbringing, education and so on.

Time-sharing schedule: This refers to the amount of time the child will spend with each parent. This will include details on holidays, weekends, and how these will be divided between each parent.

Communication: This covers the method of information sharing and communication that each parent will take when informing the other about any matter pertaining to the child.

Relocation: What method is to be followed while relocating? Your divorce lawyer Boca Raton can provide you with legal advice that would be most beneficial for your situation.
