Creating a parenting plan suitable for the whole family

One of the most important things parents want to do during a divorce is create a plan that will provide their children with stability and security for the future. Kentucky parents can do this through a parenting plan that is both thoughtful and focused on the needs of the kids above all else. In order to accomplish this, however, parents must be willing to set aside their own desires and temporary emotions to focus on the needs of their kids.

What’s in a parenting plan?

Every family is different, and what is in a parenting plan should be custom-tailored to the individual needs and interests of the specific family. Some of the things that are important for the creation of a complete estate plan include:

  • Visitation schedules
  • Drop-off and pickup procedures
  • Process for resolving disputes
  • Holiday and vacation schedules
  • How parents will share time
  • Access to extended family members

The more detailed a parenting plan is, the less likely it will be that parents will experience confusion or disputes over the terms of the agreement. A plan that allows for stability and security long-term for the children is the ultimate goal of any discussions or negotiations.

Guidance is helpful

Creating a parenting plan can be stressful and complicated. Kentucky parents will find it beneficial to work with an experienced legal ally to draft a plan that will work for years to come. This guidance can be helpful as parents work to set aside their own differences, feelings and preferences for the benefit of their children.
