Tips For Creating Parenting Plans

Creating child custody agreements can be difficult, but it is important to cover all of your bases to avoid conflict later. Below are some important considerations:

  • Will the children reside primarily with one parent or move between both homes?
  • Which parent will be responsible for transportation of the children?
  • How will educational, medical, and religious decisions be made?
  • How will the children communicate with the other parent (i.e., phone, Skype)?
  • When will holiday and vacation periods start and end?
  • How will you and your ex divide the costs of the children’s extracurricular activities?

Reporting Abuse

In Pennsylvania, medical practitioners are not required to report all disclosures of abuse or assault. But they must report child abuse and elder abuse.

The same can’t be said for some universities and colleges such as the University of Pittsburgh, which require faculty to report all incidences of assault.

This is due in part because students are protected under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Federally funded educational facilities must take action to prevent further incidents of sex discrimination against students (including sexual assault and harassment).
