Parenting Plans: February 2013 Archives

Pre-Teen Parenting Plans

In a recent custody case we litigated in the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court, a case in which the parties' minor child is a smart, articulate, athletic and very talented 11-year-old boy, an excellent resource published by the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts ("AFCC") called "Planning for Shared Parenting:  A guide for Parents Living Apart" became a vital guide for the parties in formulating an effective parenting plan that both parties agreed is in their pre-teen's best interests.  Formulating pre-teen parenting plans can be quite challenging.  This particular AFCC guide articulates a number of important issues that the parties to a custody case should consider.  Probate and Family Court judges often refer to the resource, so it is also something that should be considered in anticipating a possible judgment after a full-blown trial.  This advance knowledge certainly helps settle cases, and in turn, reduces the overall cost of litigation.
