In Florida what is a Parenting Plan?
A Parenting Plan is essentially a very detailed time sharing schedule. Parenting plans are required in paternity cases and divorce cases involving children.
The Parenting Plans that I prepare are usually between 12 and 15 pages.
They typically address the issues of who makes the decisions about the child, when does each parent see the child, how do the parents communicate, how do the parents and the child communicate when they are not together, how and where the child will be picked up and dropped off, and notification and scheduling of vacations.
Most parents do find their parenting plan to be quite detailed, but helpful in the long run.
