Parenting Plans





Divorce is often a messy business especially when it involves children since it means having to decide who gets custody and also settling visiting rights. For the child too, it is a traumatic occasion which is bound to affect him/her and maybe even leave scars for the rest of his/her life. Thus, parents that are divorcing or even when they are together should chalk out parenting plans that will help tide over these difficult times if and when they arise.

Without parenting plans, couples can often get extremely worked up and the amount of stress and frustration that is felt can often be rather indescribable. It is parenting plans that provide a good platform for parents to act upon which can save them a lot of trouble later on when they decide to part ways and divorce one another. It is a means to provide for a plan of action that will ensure the best for the child during troubled times. Parenting plans are documents that spell out the schedule for parents and may also include a description of the responsibilities of the parents with regard to bringing up their children. Parents have the option of detailing every bit of information including specifying where the child is going to live, the person or persons responsible for sending and bringing the child from school as well as specifying about where the child should spend holidays, and how parents will divide time spent with the child or children.

It is important that parenting plans are very clear and concise and there should not be any ambiguity, and the emphasis should be on the best interests of the offspring rather than vested parent interests. Since there won't ever be two exactly identical instances, most parenting plans are very individualistic and are case specific. There can be plans that allow for the children to spend time equally between the two parents, or there may be placed limits on one of the parent's visiting rights. Sometimes, consulting legal professionals when drawing up parenting plans could prove to be very helpful since a parent's legal rights will also need to be taken into consideration and will prove very useful when the motives of one parent may be dubious. In any case, the future is mostly uncertain and there will always be events and incidences that will be beyond the control of parents.

So, parenting plans can only act as a safeguard to keep things in check, though there will be no guarantee that they will work in all cases. As they say, prevention is better than cure and though parenting plans are useful, it may be better if the parents avoid getting into a messy situation in the first place.
