Co-Parenting Children After Separation or Divorce
Going through a separation or divorce is certainly difficult; when kids are involved it is even more challenging. One key to regaining structure under the new circumstances is to document which parent has responsibility for the children on a daily basis including holidays.
Documenting a Basic Parenting Plan
A written co-parenting plan is essential for keeping parents on the same page. The co-parenting plan should include:
The children's names, date of birth and social security number or id number
The weekly, weekend, holiday and vacation schedules
How the exchange of children will happen
How decisions regarding the children will be made
How children's activities will be coordinated
You can look at
Oregon's Basic Parenting Plan
for an example.
Showing Kids Where They Will Be Each Day
It can help kids to have a
printed weekly chart showing where they will be each day
. This chart can also include details like who will be giving them a ride to various activities.
