What Impacts Parenting Plans?

While a child’s parents may choose to end their relationship with each other, the courts still see value in the child having contact with both of their parents. A parenting plan allows each parent to have access to their children even after divorce.

Parenting plans establish a primary residential parent with whom the child will spend most of their time. The primary residential parent will make the day-to-day decisions for the child, so choosing which parent receives this designation is important. The primary residential parent should always be chosen with the child’s best interests in mind.

Factors that affect parenting plans include:

  • Evidence of child abuse
  • The location of the child’s school and extracurricular activities
  • The nature of the relationship between each parent and the child
  • Other people interacting or residing with the child
  • The child’s preference (if they are mature enough to have a say)
  • Relationships between siblings
  • Each parent’s work schedule

Modifying a Child Custody Agreement

When the court orders a child custody and visitation agreement, it cannot be modified without the court’s approval. The request for modification should include information about the change of circumstances that necessitates the modification and why it would affect the current order or the child’s well-being.

A custody order may need to be modified if:

  • One parent’s employment or income changes
  • The child or a parent develops a health condition or illness
  • The best interests of the child change
  • One parent needs to relocate
  • One parent commits domestic violence or child abuse
