A parenting plan is an agreement between parents who are either getting a divorce or who have never been married. The parenting plan outlines child custody arrangements. It addresses who has the children on which days, who makes major decisions about education, who makes major decisions about health care, and more. It also determines what will be done if one party’s situation changes significantly.
At the law firm of Anne E. Raduns, P.A., we know that parents who agree on a parenting plan, rather than letting the court decide, are more likely to comply with the plan. We can help you create a plan that works.

Parenting Plans Should Be Specific And Flexible
Crafting a plan that is specific and flexible creates a workable system for dividing responsibility. Such a plan can function whether or not both parties get along with each other. Ideally, both parties will strive to get along, at least in front of the children. In fact, we can create a plan that includes rules requiring that each party treat the other with respect when the children are around. A good parenting plan creates a process for resolving conflicts when they arise, whether those conflicts are related to the children or any other issue.
Create an Effective Plan That Is Built To Last
We take great care to work with you to create an effective parenting plan. The court will review your plan to determine whether or not it is in the best interests of the children, though the courts are more likely to go along with the plan if both parents have agreed on it.
What Every Parenting Plan Should Include
When outlining shared parenting schedules, the following recommendations should be followed:
- Use a regular calendar and a school calendar to plan for school breaks, holidays and summer vacations
- Define when holidays start and end
- Include days like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and birthdays
- Create a formula for anticipatable events that will work for the first one to two years of the plan’s life
- Don’t forget to include drop-off times, pick-up times and locations
The plan should also allow both parents access to medical records, school records, teachers and activities. Both parents have the right to make emergency medical decisions.
We can assist you with crafting a plan that addresses the issues that are specific to your family. To set up a consultation regarding your goals and concerns, call Anne E. Raduns, P.A., at (352) 310-8235. We represent parents in Ocala and the surrounding areas.
