Parenting Plans in Divorce


Parenting Plans that
Develop and Grow
with your Child

When working with your attorney, it is crucial that he or she has an intimate understanding of child development. The best parenting plan will meet both your child's current and future needs. Here are some great resources to help you develop a great parenting plan:

  • “Using Child Development Research to Make Appropriate Custody and Access Decisions for Young Children” by Joan B. Kelly and Michael E. Lamb
  • “Developing Beneficial Parenting Plan Models for Children Following Separation and Divorce” by Joan B. Kelly
  • “Creating Effective Parenting Plans: A Developmental Approach for Lawyers and Divorce Professionals” by John N. Hartson and Brenda J. Payne
  • “The Co-Parents' Handbook: Raising Well-Adjusted, Resilient, and Resourceful Kids in a Two-Home Family from Little Ones to Young Adults” by Karen Bonnell

Many decision have to be considered: living arrangements, vacations, school, summer break, learning to drive, piercings, tattoos, extracurricular activities, military and more.  As different as each family is, as diverse as family traditions are, each parenting plan is that unique.
