Parenting plans generally have to be very detailed in order to avoid later misunderstandings.

Children who enjoy a loving and constant relationship with their parents are more likely to mature into stable, independent and loving adults. The family law court encourages custody and visitation agreements which nurture a strong bond between the child and both parents and prefers to see parents agree to share physical and legal custody where possible. Legal custody concerns the making of the important decisions concerning health care, education and religious training. Physical custody is concerned with the child's primary residence and primary care giver.
