The content of a parenting plan may include, but is not limited to the following information:
which parent(s) has primary custody of the child(s)
how much parenting time (visitation rights) is given to each parent
how the child is to be transported and exchanged between parents
how both parents are to communicate with each other to coordinate childcare
Some additional things to know about parenting plans:
Once a party files a petition to get custody of a child, both parties have 120 days to file a parenting plan. Both parties are allowed to file a parenting plan jointly as well.
If you do not file your appearance, there is no penalty for failing to submit a parenting plan. However, a judge is more likely to rule in one's favor if a plan is submitted.
If neither party submits a parenting plan, it is the court's responsibility to create one.
