How To Create A Successful Parenting Plan

Some parents try to "win" child custody cases. This thought process shows that the parent wants possession over their child, rather than considering that child may benefit from being with both parental figures. A successful parenting plan should maximize parenting time for both parties, given that is in your child's best interest.

While your ex may not be your favorite person right now, you will need to work together to support a healthy and happy child. The plan should reflect the fact that you and your ex will work together to raise your child. Overall, showing respect for one another can have a major impact on how your children treat relationships in the future.

Do Not Get Lost In The Details

While it is important to be thorough, do not get stuck on the details of your parenting plan. It is easy to get caught up in a maze of schedules and locations. Fighting over the details of your parenting plan will affect the well-being of you and your children, while simultaneously making you forget your priorities.
