San Diego Court Parenting Plans
A separation or divorce affects every member of the family, including the children. The parents need to come to some sort of resolution regarding the children that keeps the best interests of the young ones in mind. At Divorce Options San Diego, divorce mediation keeps the focus on the children so the parents can walk away from the table knowing they’ve made the best choices possible for their kids.
Developmental Needs of the Child
We’ll help you look at the developmental needs of your children based on their current ages. If your children have any special needs, these will also be taken into account. In some cases there may need to be a small amount of flexibility that addresses the children’s needs as they age. Any clauses added in this regard need to be feasible and written in a clear fashion and format. When there’s a lot of animosity involved and conflict between the two parents the details in the parenting plan must be written precisely. This way, there will be nothing in the document that can be misconstrued at a later date and both parties will be well aware of the financial and custodial obligations involved. Parenting plans can be legally submitted by a mediator to the court, and once they are signed off by a judge they become binding. When you use a mediator you can make the final decisions about your child’s welfare without leaving it in the hands of a thirdparty. You know your children best, and leaving their destiny up to a judge isn’t the wisest decision to make.

Child Custody Parenting Plan
The parenting plan drafted for your situation will be based on a solution that’s agreed upon by both parties. The wording won’t be ambiguous but rather clearcut so each spouse knows exactly what his or her rights and obligations are. Problems arise from parenting plans that are vague and don’t correctly outline all of the factors involved. We make sure nothing is left to chance and everything is covered in the plan before it’s signed off.
