Making The Complex Understandable

Importance of legal counsel in preparing co-parenting plans

If you are going through a divorce that involves children, you already know how stressful battles over custody, parenting time and child support can be. With more and more divorced parents ending up in some type of joint or shared custody arrangement, the coparenting plan has become one of the most important documents of the divorce.

Whether you are trying to work with your ex to draw up a co-parenting plan you both can agree on or are trying to get the judge to approve certain details of the plan, it's important to work with an experienced family law attorney. An attorney can help you better understand the true nature of the co-parenting plan, what should be included and how to choose the wording to protect your rights and the best interests of your children.

A co-parenting plan is a very detailed document even in the simplest of divorces, and it's important that every aspect be handled correctly. There are also times when the co-parenting plan may need to be changed or adjusted. This often happens as the children get older and have different schedules and needs. It's important to approach any potential changes to the plan with a focus on being as civil and cooperative with your ex as possible.

In best case scenarios, the plan can be created or altered with very little argument. However, in some high-conflict situations, it can take some time and even the final word from the judge to reach a resolution. No matter where your case falls on this spectrum, we can help you get the information you need to move forward.
