St. Petersburg Parenting Plan Attorney

Divorce can be tough, especially if there are children involved. As much as you want to be done with your former spouse already, your children still need both of you to work together and figure out how to give them the best future they deserve.

Parenting plans are often the answer to this problem. Before a judge can decide over a child custody case, you and your former spouse need to submit a parenting plan. The judge will then use this as the basis for granting parental responsibilities and determining visitation rights.

When creating a parenting plan, you need to be as detailed as possible. And although both you and your spouse want the best for your children, there will be points where agreements will be hard to achieve. Heated conversations may even erupt at some point.

So before you dive into the legal complications of establishing a parenting plan, contact a legal team first. You don’t have to do it all alone. Emerson Law has a team of commendable parenting plan attorneys that can help you. With our knowledge and experience, we guarantee the best parenting plan that’s favorable for you and especially your children.

Creating a Parenting Plan in St. Petersburg, Florida

The purpose of a parenting plan is to meet every child’s needs despite you and your former spouse living separately already. Parenting plans must include all the following:

  • Who will be responsible for the children’s health care?
  • How much time will each parent spend with the children?
  • What are the daily duties of both parents in raising the children?
  • Who will make the educational decisions?
  • What will the pick-up and drop-off methods be?
  • Who will make the extracurricular decisions?
  • What is the mode of communication that each parent will use when the children are with the other parent?
  • Where will the children live?

Additionally, parenting plans may change as the children grow older. That means you should draft a parenting plan that includes details on how to accommodate possible future changes.

These are only some of the things you need to consider when establishing a parenting plan. The more detailed, comprehensive, and compelling your plan is, the better. That is why it is best to acquire help from a legal professional.

Benefits of Working with a Parenting Plan Attorney

There are some things that you just can’t perfectly do on your own. Creating a parenting plan is one of them. You need the guidance of an experienced attorney to fully make sure that you got all the details necessary for a satisfactory plan.

The following are some of the benefits of working with a parenting plan attorney:

You can do everything right in accordance with Florida family law. Because a parenting plan attorney has comprehensive knowledge of the law, they can legally guide you in every decision you make. With their constant advice, you won’t have to worry about violating regulations. Also, you can be certain that all the steps you are taking will be legally advantageous for you and your children.

The results will be convenient for you. Parenting plan attorneys are skilled negotiators. Once they know the terms that you want, they will work on helping you achieve them. They have the knowledge and skills to work around the law to provide you with the most favorable result for your case.

Your children’s rights and interests will be prioritized. Aside from your rights, your children’s welfare will be something that will fuel a parenting plan attorney’s legal actions. Like you, it will be their priority to give what is best for your children.

Your stress will be reduced. Legal procedures are never like walks in the park. They are complex and—especially in divorce and child custody cases—emotionally stressful. With a parenting plan attorney helping you through the process, a significant amount of stress will be taken off your plate. They will already be the ones who will draft and file your documents. They will also take charge of the negotiation process.

  • "He held my hand through my entire custody process."

    Mr. Emerson for lack of a better phrase held my hand through my entire custody process. I was very busy with other personal matters during the custody procedures, but my case never missed a beat due to Mr. Emersons diligence. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney in any of his areas of expertise. Mr. Emersons rates were also fantastic when I compared a few different lawyers.
