Viable Custody And Parenting Plans: Focused On Your Children
An overarching theme of a divorce when children are involved is that actions taken on the children’s behalf should be in their best interests. In practice, this often means crafting custody arrangements and parenting plans that keep disruptions to children’s routines to a minimum.

- Shared parenting
Divorce and child custody attorney Dietz will work with you to come up with a viable parenting plan that keeps the focus on your children while accounting for your needs, as well.
Establishing Parental Responsibilities
A parenting plan can go well beyond creating a schedule for where children will stay for a given day, week or month. Divorcing parents need to establish who is responsible for making important decisions regarding matters such as their children’s education, health care and even religious affiliation.
Financial matters can be resolved, as well, such as which parent is entitled to claim the child as a dependent for tax purposes. In some cases, custody needs to be determined if parents are unmarried at the time of a child’s birth. In others, custody arrangements might be revisited if a parent is unable to properly care for his or her own children.
