In a divorce with minor children, parentage actions or nonparental custody matters, parents and guardians need to consider the importance of establishing a parenting plan. A parenting plan defines each of the parent's or guardian's rights, duties and responsibilities when it comes to the children involved. Of utmost significance is the fact that a parenting plan will also set a residential schedule of time to be spent with the children. Any family law litigation that involves creation or modification of a parenting plan can be very emotionally difficult and have long lasting impacts upon the parents, guardians and especially, the children for years to come.
