plans outline where children will live, which parent they will live with,

How Are Parenting Plans Determined?
Courts often prefer that parents work together to create a parenting plan.
When parents agree on parenting plans, it often leads to healthier relationships
and makes it easier for children during a
divorce. If parents agree on a parenting plan, a judge will approve it.
If there is a dispute regarding your parenting plan and you cannot come
to an agreement, then the judge will be forced to decide for you. The
judge will make his or her decision based on the best interests of the child.
Factors that affect how a court determines parenting plans:
- Relationship a child has with each parent
- Mental and physical capacity of each parent
- Ability of each parent to provide for the child’s basic needs
- Whether a parent will encourage stable and loving relationships for the child
