Parenting Plans


A Parenting Plan details the agreements made between parents about how they will care for their children. Most Parenting Plans become part of a Separation Agreement, but they can be made as 'stand alone' documents if that's what you need.

Parenting Plans are made in the format of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) using DivorceMate Software and can easily be converted into a legal document that can then be signed by the parties and witnessed. 

Parenting Plans usually include:

  • Regular Residency Schedule
  • Special Holiday Residency Schedule
  • Guidelines about transfers between residences
  • General contact information
  • Communication between parents and between parents and children
  • Special circumstances
  • Moving Residences
  • Decision making about medical. educational and religious activities
  • Actions in case of emergencies
