To help make this easier, we've created an online tool for creating parenting plans that is simple and easy to use:
We encourage parents, regardless of the process they are using to divorce, to use this form to assist in evaluating and settling custody disputes. The form allows you to choose between the Model Parenting Plan proposals or customize your parenting plan over a four week period by clicking directly on the form. When you click on a section of the calendar it switches between Mom and Dad, and if you choose to print the calendar directly from the web it results in this user-friendly printable format:
gender-neutral version of this form for parents for whom that is more appropriate:
The form is not intended to convey a preference for one type of parenting plan over another, but instead to recognize that every family is unique and should develop a plan that fits their needs. Every block in the worksheet can be toggled back and forth between parents so they can easily see what different schedules will look like. We hope that this tool is used by parents and practitioners to assist in reducing family conflict.
If you have any questions about the form or want to provide us feedback please don't hesitate to e-mail us or call at 508.655.5980.
