Franklin Child Custody Attorney
A properly constructed parenting plan will define the amount of time each parent spends with the child(ren) following the divorce process. It will be enforceable as part of the child custody, visitation and child support agreements finalized in the divorce decree. The parenting plan establishes:
- Primary residence of your child(ren)
- Visitation schedule for the noncustodial parent (parenting time)
- Child support schedule
As skilled family law mediator, I will help you work for the best opportunities to craft these agreements on your own, outside of court. If you and your spouse cannot come to agreement, the court will make the decision for you. It is best to try to take emotions out of the equation and work for resolution in the best interests of your child(ren). Think about the parenting plan from their point of view. My thoughtful and compassionate work will help your children continue to develop meaningful relationships with each parent.

Experienced Guidance Creating Agreeable Parenting Plans
I have helped clients throughout middle Tennessee build and adapt to parenting plans that work for both parents and children. As your lawyer, my focus on your needs and goals will allow us to reach agreement on a plan that will inflict as little stress and emotional damage as possible.
Through the course of the legal process, each parent is required to attend a four-hour divorcing parent seminar, which also offers helpful education about how to keep children out of parental disputes. I assist both mothers and fathers in developing favorable resolutions. Your parenting plan will account for several factors that might affect your circumstances and those of your child(ren), including:
- Pick-up and drop-off times
- Weekday vs. weekend schedules
- Holiday schedules
- Vacation planning
- Babysitting or day care
- Educational needs
- Health care needs
- Emotional needs
- Extracurricular activities
- Other special needs
