After Divorce numerous challenges arise regarding who is supposed to take care of the children and, more often, couples find themselves in courts seeking legal intervention to solve the whole issue of children. In some rare cases, after the divorce, the father assumes a responsibility of visiting his children after some time, and this may work perfectly if the divorced parties are in agreement.
However, in some cases, disagreements arise which necessitates the need for a shared parenting plan.
Shared parenting is best described as a court-ordered arrangement which carefully assigns all parental responsibilities and rights involving a child after a divorce or in instances where the parents of the child were never married.
In this case, the child is brought up with the love and care of both parents as equal partners. In a shared parenting plan, key issues involving the child such as parenting or visitation time and the decision-making authority are fully deliberated upon by the court.
Other issues may include the most appropriate school for the child and who between the father and the mother remains in custody of the minor. In parallel parenting, parents of the minor are required to share all or some of the aspects of the legal and physical care of the child in strict accordance with the shared parenting plan.
