Parenting Plan Basics

The topic of children during a divorce or legal separation can be a complicated one. A Parenting Plan lays out the agreement between two parents about physical and legal custody, child support, a visitation schedule, and health insurance, among other issues.

Use the Parenting Plan document if:

  • You and your spouse are divorcing and need a plan for each other's involvement in the child's life after the divorce.
  • You and your spouse are filing for a legal separation and want to determine child custody and support.
  • You have a child with someone to whom you are not married and want to enforce a plan for parenting time and visitation.

Parents of minor children can use the Parenting Plan to put their agreement about their children in writing. The Parenting Plan may be filed with a court if required as part of a child custody agreement, or may be an informal agreement between parents.
