Being a parent is hard, there are days when you just try to do your best. Trying to parent with an ex-spouse can add another level of complexity. Even if you and your ex-spouse have decided an uncontested divorce is the best option for you, we strongly advice consulting with a lawyer first, especially as it relates to the children.
Developing and agreeing on a parenting plan is critically important. The parenting plan is a document that directs how parents will care of the children. It outlines time sharing, responsibilities and decision making for the children.
As you begin to develop your parenting plan remember to include:
- Daily task responsibility
- Holiday schedule
- Medical care
- Child care providers
- Child Support
- Special Needs
- Conflict Resolution
Once the court has issued the parenting plan it can be modified if there is a justified reason, such as a substantial change in circumstance, long distance move, child abuse, or a shift in the child’s needs due to health or age.
Remember, you don’t need to create your parenting plan alone. Trust the experienced team of attorneys at Florida Women’s Law Group. We are committed to providing you a positive experience all while seamlessly handling the meticulous details.
