A Parenting Plan is a written agreement (and essential component of an overall divorce decree/agreement) between two parents that lays out their rights and responsibilities concerning the care of their children. It is also used to avoid any type of conflict that may arise in the future. A parenting plan typically includes: legal custody, physical custody, and detailed parenting schedules.
