The Importance of a Well-Crafted Parenting Plan Roswell, GA
Mother and Child Family Attorney Roswell GA

No two parents are the same, so developing a detailed parenting plan during divorce can be the key to successful co-parenting. If tensions are high, this may be difficult. Here are some tips to developing a Parenting Plan that will work for both parents, and make sure the needs of the children are met.

The Goals of a Parenting Plan

The stability and health of your children is the most important factor to consider when developing a parenting plan. Plans need to be concise and address the needs of the children at their particular stages of development. A good plan will establish time sharing and financial responsibilities and will minimize the negative aspects of the situation on the children. The plan should also be flexible enough to accommodate changes for all involved.

Things to Consider

  • Age of the Child. The needs of a toddler will vary from the needs of a teenager. Keep this in mind as you develop a co-parenting schedule.
  • School Activities. If you have school-age children, develop a plan that will allow both parents to participate.
  • Childcare Concerns. Make sure you agree on childcare and provide contact information for any caregivers.
  • Medical Needs. If your child has medical issues, factor those into your plan. Parenting schedules may need to be more flexible to allow for healthcare visits or therapy sessions.
  • Work Demands. Be prepared to compromise if your job requires you to travel, or if you have extended work hours.
  • Distance Between Homes. If you and your former partner live a considerable distance away, your time sharing will have to reflect this.

A well-thought-out Parenting Plan can save the time wasted in lengthy litigation. It is important that you lean on the experience of a family attorney as you come to an agreement.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
