Have you set up a parenting plan with the courts yet??

I am thinking DH and I should do this while on decent terms. I dont want to go through a custody battle if something were to happen.
How do I start this process?
Does anyone else on here have one?

  • Yes with my husband.
    A parenting plan is when the parents go to the court and sign legal papers saying who gets custody of the kid(s), and the visitation rights if there were to be a divorce.

  • do it while you two are still getting along but dhs will tell you what is best for you to make sure nothing bad will happen in the end i got mine when my son was 6 weeks old .. I have full Physical custody and we share Joint legal custody if your not sure what they are joint legal custody is where he can get all paper work on her/him for the schools like grades and that and can take them to the doctor if needed and Physical custody is where your the one they will live with and be taken care by
