Creating A Parenting Plan On Your Own Can Be Difficult

The most important and emotional aspect of many family law cases is the creation of a parenting plan for the care and residential schedule of the child or children from the relationship. Securing a stable home environment and accurate financial support of children whose parents are involved in paternity or divorce disputes requires more than legal skill. Compassion matters, too. Our attorneys at Yelish Law are experienced at efficiently resolving child-related issues while highlighting both the children’s and the client’s best interests.

There Are Many Stages To Developing A Parenting Plan

To create a parenting plan, a court will look at many factors, including the history of the parenting of the children during the marriage, the age and emotional state of the children and the best interests of the children. It is important to discuss all aspects of child custody with an experienced family law attorney.

As a parent, it is important to shield your children from the potential conflict that may arise between parents. Cooperation and being able to come to agreements regarding the parenting of your children benefits both the children and the parents. You should always protect your children from being placed in the middle of the divorce proceeding. Kitsap County requires that you attend a half-day parenting seminar to learn about the potential harm that can be caused to children by a divorce proceeding. You are required to take this seminar prior to the entry of a parenting plan.
