Georgia Divorce Parenting Plans
Parents who are going through a divorce are required by Georgia law to complete a Permanent Parenting Plan before their divorce may be finalized. As the name implies, the Parenting Plan covers a range of information regarding the care and custody of children involved in the divorce.
What Is Covered in the Parenting Plan?
The Parenting Plan includes information such as:
- Designation of physical and legal custody
- Monthly visitation schedule as well as visitation for holidays/vacation periods
- Guidelines for transportation of children and parameters for contact during visitation
Additionally, the Plan outlines an agreement between the parents that all day-to-day decisions will be made by the physical custodian, and it requires that the parents pledge to make a good-faith effort to resolve any disputes that may arise regarding custody or visitation.
