What is a parenting plan?
A parenting plan in Georgia is a comprehensive document that’s required in every divorce with minor children. It governs legal custody and physical custody, and it sets forth which parent has the right to make decisions regarding the children and where and when the children spend their time with each parent. It can also govern other issues such as transportation, access to records, attendance at school events, passports, etc. Because it covers so much information and because it is so detailed to the needs and interests of your children, it’s important to discuss this with an attorney prior to entering into a parenting plan in a divorce.
