You might be tempted to duke it out in court with your ex for months or even years, but a parenting plan is a much wiser strategy that protects everyone’s well-being. Indeed, a parenting plan may be the best gift you can give yourself.
Parenting Plans are in the best interest of the children
When you make financial, custody, and other divorce decisions, the well-being of your children should be the first thing on your mind. More than half of children whose parents get embroiled in custody battles develop depression, but a parenting plan can save them from this misery.

You have a few different options when one parent violates the agreement, when you can’t agree about what to put in the parenting plan, or when you want to change the plan but your ex doesn’t.
