What do I have to include in my parenting plan?

If you are dealing with legal issues involving your children that have arisen after divorce, it is imperative to handle them appropriately. If you live in Belleville, you should familiarize yourself with the laws in Illinois, since they vary from state to state. For example, if you are preparing a parenting plan with your former spouse, make sure that you include all of the necessary components and that the plan is put together well.

According to the Illinois General Assembly, there are a number of components that parenting plans need to have. For example, you have to include information related to parenting time and child-care living arrangements, such as an explanation of which days the child will stay with a certain parent. You will also need to include an explanation of which types of significant decisions in your child's life will be made by a particular parent, the phone numbers, addresses and employers of both parents.

Other components that must be addressed in your parenting plan include provisions regarding transportation, medical care, any plans to travel, electronic communication and other forms of contact, handling a future relocation and other matters that may affect your child's best interests. When putting together your parenting plan, you should closely review everything that parents are required to provide and make sure that the plan is accurate and contains all of the necessary information.
