About Parenting Plans
In Missouri, a parenting plan is a document that outlines the responsibilities and rights each parent has regarding their child. Parents may work together to create a parenting plan outside of the courtroom and have their final plan approved by a judge. This is often the preferred way to establish a parenting plan since both parents have a say, and it helps to maintain a healthy relationship between the parents. However, divorces can be highly combative, and a judge may have to determine who gets custody if the parents cannot come to an agreement. The judge will make the decision by taking into account what is in the best interests of the child.
The following factors will be considered by the judge to determine the child’s best interests:
- Each parent’s health
- Each parent’s living arrangements
- Either parent’s intention to relocate
- Any history of child abuse or neglect
- The child’s relationships with both parents
- The child’s adjustment to their school, home, and community
