Creating an effective parenting plan works best when both parents are willing to communicate and work together to maintain a structured schedule the whole family can count on.
It is also essential to set realistic goals. Consider school schedules, activities, and the ability of each parent to care for the children during different times of the week. Creating a parenting plan that is not realistic often leads to the parties making exceptions to the agreed arrangement, which often causes problems in the future. Particularly, this type of arrangement may be problematic should it become necessary to file an enforcement action.
