What Is a Parenting Plan?

When implementing orders regarding custody, visitation, and support, Tennessee judges and courts are primarily concerned with the well-being of children. This is in accordance with the state’s Parenting Plan Statute.

The law requires all divorcing parents with children under the age of 18 to create a parenting plan that details each parent’s right and responsibilities toward their child. This plan sets forth how the parents will raise their kids after a divorce, and it should be focused on providing for the needs of the children.

A parenting plan may address issues such as:

  • The child’s physical, social, and emotional well-being
  • The child’s healthcare
  • The child’s education
  • Child support
  • Parenting time
  • Residential schedule
  • Final decision-making authority
  • Insurance for the child

Can a child decide which parent to live with in Tennessee?

A child cannot decide which parent they want to live with until they are 18 years old. However, children 12 years and older may express a reasonable preference and the court must consider it. This does not mean that the court has to place the child where they want, just that they have to give it consideration. Our child custody attorney in Franklin helps with child support.

Let Us Help You Create A Parenting Plan

Parents are encouraged to work together to create a parenting plan rather than leaving it up to a judge. MC Davis Law can help you and your spouse create a comprehensive arrangement that satisfies both parties and focuses on the needs of your child.
