Guidance from a Sugar Land Divorce Attorney
Even when divorcing parents come to an agreement on all custody and visitation matters, their proposed arrangement must still be approved by a Texas court. These proposals are presented in the form of a parenting plan: a comprehensive outline detailing how all child custody and visitation matters will be handled by the parents post-divorce.
Ideally, these parenting plans are established by parents who are ready to listen to one another and keep the best interests of their child in mind. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case and conflicts can occur.

What's in a parenting plan?
Simply put, a parenting plan includes every foreseeable detail concerning child custody and visitation. The goal of these plans is to have the parents decide on them before going before a judge so that important parenting decisions remain in the hands of the parents and are not automatically handed over to the state.
Just a few of the details that parenting plans include are:
- How certain parenting decisions will be made (jointly, individually, etc.)
- How custody and visitation works for individual holidays and vacations
- How communication will happen between the two parents
- How the child will be accommodated in each of the parents' residences
- Any preventative measures to avoid future disputes or trips to court
In cases where there is a high amount of conflict between the couple, the court may assign a parenting coordinator to help work with the parents and their attorneys. No matter what level of conflict you might experience during this process, however, it is essential that you have vigilant counsel to navigate this negotiation process and look out for you and your child's best interests.
