A parenting plan is a court order that provides a detailed cooperative approach to divorced parents raising their children.
The plan details the rights, duties and responsibilities of each parent. It accommodates both parents’ work schedules and lifestyles. Parenting plans make provisions for how the parents will:
· share the residential schedule of their children
· make decisions for the children
· resolve disputes between one another
Final parenting plans may be modified down the road by filing a parenting plan modification action with the court. The modifications can be resolved by agreement with the other parent or by a court after a hearing or trial.
If you have a parenting plan that needs modification, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who will help you pursue an outcome that works in the best interests for you and your children.
