5 Components of Negotating a Parenting Plan

Parenting Plan

In a divorce case that involves minor children, one major issue that must be addressed under New York State law is custody. Contrary to popular presumption, custody does not refer to which parent the child lives with, though this is one aspect of custody. Another factor is how major decisions are handled, such as those regarding the key components of child-rearing. When a parent has sole custody, he or she will make all legal decisions and the child resides with that person. Joint custody involves sharing in decision-making, including a determination on where the child resides and how time is divvied up between the parents.

The nature of the arrangement requires parents to agree on issues related to raising the child, which they typically memorialize in a parenting plan. The more areas you can concur on as parents, the less likely it is that you will need to get the court involved in the event of a dispute. Still, there are five essentials you should include, and a skilled New York divorce and family law attorney can help.
