We Agree: Creating a Parenting Plan
Research says that children do best when both of their parents are involved in their lives. When families change through separation, divorce, re-marriage, or a paternity action, a whole new set of challenges arises for parents and their children. A parenting plan can help parents successfully co-parent in these situations. Some states, like Minnesota, may require the creation of a parenting plan depending the family's situation.
We Agree: Creating a Parenting Plan helps parents make child-focused decisions about parenting. It includes a worksheet that will help them create a parenting plan that describes living arrangements, parenting time, rules, education, and other day-to-day and long-term issues. In addition, the publication addresses how to change the plan and deal with disagreements about the decisions.
