How to make a parenting plan that works

When Pennsylvania parents of young children get divorced, it doesn't end their responsibility to raise their children together. Assuming that both parents are fit to do so, they will generally be able to be in their children's lives. In fact, Pennsylvania parents and others should strive to celebrate the fact that a former spouse has a good relationship with the children. Overall, parents should work in tandem similar to how business partners do.

Those who are raising kids with a former spouse should understand that emergency situations may arise. These scenarios may require an individual to take the child for an extra day or two even if it isn't part of the parenting plan. To prevent conflicts from spiraling out of control, parents should get together and discuss how to handle them as they arise. If former spouses cannot get along, their respective lawyers may be able to help negotiate a plan of action.

In most cases, it may only be appropriate to talk about topics relating to the children. What a person does on his or her own time away from the kids should not be discussed. It is also a good idea to refrain from asking the children about what the other parent may be doing.

When a court is determining child custody, the best interests of the child is the top priority. Therefore, parents may benefit from taking steps to show that they are fit to have contact with their child. An attorney may provide suggestions as to how parents may further establish themselves as fit to have liberal access to their children.
