Parenting Plans in Denton County

Lewisville & Flower Mound Family Lawyer

A parenting plan is established between two parents in order to determine how the children will be raised, the responsibilities of each parent, custody and visitation rights, and how important decisions will be made. Whether it is court-ordered or created at will, a parenting plan is an essential tool that is used to avoid any future conflict between two parents who are divorced or separated.

At Haugen Law Firm, P.C., we are determined to provide effective legal counsel needed to address any disagreements that may be identified as well as create a parenting plan that is in the best interests of the child and each parent involved. Our Denton County divorce attorney can help get clients started in an effective manner.

Common Components of a Parenting Plan

Although each parenting plan is uniquely set up to adhere to each family's specific needs, there are common components that are typically discussed in every plan.

These components include, but are not limited to:

  • Who is responsible for making the day-to-day decisions for the children;
  • How holidays will be spent;
  • Deciding how financial expenses and child support will be dealt with;
  • How time will be split up between each parent and their children;
  • Figuring out a stable schedule regarding weekdays and weekends;
  • How they will go about exchanging the children;
  • Determining how they will go about solving disagreements or making important decisions; and
  • Arranging their recreational and daily activities.

Although these components are most commonly found in a parenting plan, it is important to understand that every family and their needs are completely unique from one another. While some people may come to an easier agreement than others, it is not uncommon for disagreements to arise. A Denton County divorce attorney can guide you through the legal processes and make sure that the parenting plan fits the unique needs of your family.
