Parenting Plans in Lawrenceville, GA
Lawrenceville Family Lawyer Helping Transitioning Parents
Under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. §19-9-1), any
family law case that involves a matter of
child custody requires a permanent parenting plan to be written. These may include cases
such as those relating to
divorce, the establishment of child custody, the
modification of child custody and
legitimation. A parenting plan is a legally binding document that establishes the terms
and details of a child custody agreement. This document is mandatory even
when both parents are able to agree on their custody arrangements amongst
themselves. The purpose of a permanent parenting plan is to provide a
structure for the parents to engage in consistent and healthy co-parenting.
These may include terms that have to do with the following:
- Primary physical custody
- Joint legal custody
- The process for how final decisions will be reached
Visitation, including weekend, summer and/or holiday visitation
- Transportation arrangements
- Arrangements for supervised visitation
- Frequency and nature of telephone calls to the child or children
- Clauses concerning morality and conduct
- Ability to access the child's or children's records
At Fox Firm, P.C., we know that permanent parenting plans cannot be handled
from a "one size fits all" approach. For this reason, we help
parents design safe and sensible plans that meet the specific needs of
their families. Our
Lawrenceville divorce attorney has more than 20 years of experience and is fully committed to helping
parents protect the best interests of their children through strong parenting plans!
What if we can't agree on a parenting plan?
If both parents are not able to come to their own agreement on a permanent
parenting plan, the judge will have to hold a child custody hearing and
make his or her own decision on the plan's terms. While it is preferable
for parents to come to decisions outside of court, we understand that
this is not always possible. We are ready to assist individuals who are
working the parenting plan terms out with the other parent, as well as
those who need to present strong arguments before a judge concerning their
child custody arrangements.
