A parenting plan is something the Florida courts require in every case involving children. It controls the time-sharing with the child, how the parents will communicate, how the parents will communicate with the child, and with each other, how decisions will be made long-term, and day-to-day decisions for the children. It’s very important that you make sure the parenting plan covers your child’s needs, and reflects your family’s best interest. This can be very difficult in a litigated case. It’s one of the reasons I recommend a collaborative case, where you have a lot more time and study to put into the parenting plan, so that your child has their needs met.
