Illinois Parenting Plan Template

Figuring out how to allocate parental responsibilities and forming a parenting schedule can get downright ugly if parents do not agree on custody issues.By having a look at the template on this page, you can mentally prepare yourself for the types of decisions you’ll need to make in the months after you file for your divorce. Courts always try to honor arrangements that have the best interests of the child in mind and minimize their stress so remember to have realistic expectations.

Coming to an arrangement that maximizes the time the child has with each parent while keeping them close to their existing schools and lifestyle is ideal. The parenting plan is also your chance to decide on which responsibilities, such as their education or healthcare, you want to share with your spouse or which you want to divide.

These factors and many others are considered individually in the event that you and your spouse cannot agree on the parenting plan. Carefully consider each one so that you can put yourself in the best position to maximize your time with your children and have as much of a say in your future as you can.
