Online Tool for Creating Parenting Plans

It is our hope that all families find a way to resolve conflict peacefully.  This is especially true when children are involved.  Divorced or separated parenting has many complications and the first is just deciding how to share time with a child from two separate households.  Developing a schedule can result in a lot of tension, especially if parents have trouble picturing how this new schedule will interact with their work schedules and the schedules of their children.

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:
We have also provided a 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.
