What Is Included in a Parenting Plan?
In Florida, custody arrangements are now referred to as parenting plans. Just like a custody arrangement, in a parenting plan it is important to include information regarding:
- Where the child will live and how much time the child will spend with each parent, which is known as time-sharing
- The rights of each parent to make decisions about the child such as educational or health-related decisions
- The responsibilities of each parent to pay for health care costs, educational costs and extracurricular activities
- How each parent will communicate with the child, whether by cellphone, Skype or other forms of technology
