What is a Parenting Plan?
Under Florida law, in every paternity and divorce case involving a minor child, the Court must enter an approved Parenting Plan which specifically meets the needs of said child. The purpose of the Parenting Plan is to set forth expectations each of the parties in an effort to eliminate future conflict. Issues commonly addressed in the Parenting Plan are: parental responsibility, time sharing, access to records, and school zone districts.
Elements of a Parenting Plan
Pursuant to Florida Statute § 61.13(2)(b), at a minimum, a Parenting Plan must contain the following specific elements:
- “A description in adequate detail of how the parents will share and be responsible for the daily tasks associated with the upbringing of the child;"
- “The time-sharing schedule arrangements that specify the time that the minor child will spend with each parent;"
- A designation of who will be responsible for making health care and school-related decisions, including the designation of the residence that will determine what school district the child attends. The Parenting Plan should also set forth the other anticipated activities and determine who will make the decisions relating to each of them.
- A detailed description of the methods and technologies that the parents will use to communicate with the child.”
