When you and your spouse share children and decide to get divorced, there are a variety of topics which must be sorted out before the divorce can be finalized and the court order can be issued. One of the issues which you should discuss with an Alpharetta divorce lawyer is a parenting plan. Our legal team at The Millard Law Firm has years of experience helping families like yours establish a parenting plan that works for you.
What Is the Purpose of a Parenting Plan?
A parenting plan is a court order that identifies the primary physical custodian, the secondary physical custodian (party with visitation), and how legal custody is to be divided. It may seem simple enough, but if you and your spouse cannot come to an agreement, it is highly recommended to have an experienced Alpharetta parenting plan lawyer to guide you.
How We Can Help
The form you fill out can also be very complicated which is why retaining a divorce firm to represent you is essential. If your matter involves child custody, you should never take any risks by trying to sort out your issues without a lawyer. You can rely on our legal team to answer your questions and help guide you through the steps of drafting a parenting plan.
You and your spouse or the court must specifically lay out:
The child or children’s schedule for the entire year.
Scheduling specific times and dates each parent’s custody time will end.
Who will have the final decision making authority for educational, religious, extra-curricular, and non-emergency medical decisions.
Pursuing Your Child’s Best Interests
Going through a divorce is hard enough on your children without their parents fighting over who will have custody over them. You need to remember what is most important to you and keep your children’s best interest in mind at all times.
