Parenting Plans must be completed in any action involving child custody (divorce, separate maintenance, legitimation, modification). Below are several forms to assist you in developing the plan that will work best for your family.

Blank parenting plan

Select your own provisions based on your family’s special circumstances.

Standard parenting plan

Includes provisions such as joint legal custody, alternating weekends, alternating holidays and two weeks of summer vacation. You may customize provisions as needed.

Long distance parenting plan

The non-custodial parent lives out of state.

Sole custody to petitioner

This plan is intended for the following situations:

  • The non-custodial parent cannot be located
  • The non-custodial parent is incarcerated

Graduated Visitation

This plan is intended for limited special circumstances to give the child and visiting parent time to adjust to visitation over a 12-month period.

Joint Parenting Plans (50/50)

Attorney consultation is recommended.


When you need two (2) separate Parenting Plans:

If you are filing a divorce or separate maintenance, and you have biological children with the Defendant and children who were not fathered or adopted by the husband, you will need:
