What to Include in Your Parenting Plan

If you are going through a divorce, you know that oftentimes even the simplest of matters cannot be resolved quickly or easily, so it comes as no surprise that agreeing on something as important as a parenting plan between two ex-spouses is crucial. When it comes to our children, we are all fiercely protective and want the best for them--and the best means that children have a set plan and schedule with both parents, so as to guide them through what is undoubtedly a difficult process.

No matter how amicable you are with your ex-spouse, it is important to set some ground rules and establish a parenting plan that puts your child first. At the Virdone Law Firm, we are experienced Long Island divorce lawyers who have seen the entire spectrum of parenting plans, good and bad. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the most important factors to consider when making your own parenting plan.

Important issues to consider while making a parenting plan are as follows:

  • Schedules, including weekends
  • Summer, winter, and spring break schedules
  • Holidays
  • Vacations
  • Your children’s birthdays
  • Overnight stays
  • Transportation
  • Child care
  • Rules for meeting new dating partners
  • Car seat requirements
  • Neutral drop-off locations
  • Discipline methods
  • Vaccinations
  • Curfews
  • Sleeping arrangements
  • Parent-child communication
  • Internet use
  • Cell phone access
  • Expectations regarding school activities, sports, religion, etc.
  • Sleeping arrangements
  • Third-party visitation
  • Legal and physical custody decisions
  • Post-judgment modifications
