You can fill out the Parenting Plan form on your own. Or you can ask a lawyer to help you. Most of the time, the law requires that you and your spouse go to a mediator if you cannot agree on the Parenting Plan. The mediator will help you make a Plan that you can agree to and that’s good for the children.
If you and the other parent cannot agree, you can each file a Parenting Plan. The court will decide what the Parenting Plan will be.
