Three Creative Parenting Plan Solutions to Consider for Your Wisconsin Divorce

Posted on in Divorce/Family Law

Wisconsin family law attorneyEvery Wisconsin parenting plan should be individualized. After all, every family is unique. However, there are some situations that may warrant a highly specialized plan – one that attempts to meet the needs, wants, and desires of all parties while still mitigating against potential challenges and concerns. Learn more about some of the more unique strategies that parents are using in their divorces these days, and discover how an experienced family law attorney can help you with effectively using one of them in your Wisconsin parenting plan.

Long-Distance Parenting Plans

In an ideal world, all parents would live near their children. Unfortunately, the world is anything but ideal. Parents move away to pursue a better job, start a new career path, seek more family support, and pursue new relationships. When they do, the child can feel that parent’s absence. A long-distance parenting plan, complete with arrangements for in-person visits and video chats, can help mitigate against those feelings, and it can keep both parents active in the child’s life. Keep in mind, however, that such plans are complex and should be done with the assistance of an attorney – especially if the long-distance parent is in the armed forces.

Toddler and Infant Parenting Plan

Studies have recently suggested that children of divorce may benefit from a shared parenting plan – or a plan where both parents have the child for an almost equal amount of time. There is no place where this seems more important than with toddlers and infants. You see, though older children understand (at least to some extent) what is happening, toddlers and infants only know that everything is changing. As a result, they may become more stressed if they spend too long away from one parent or the other. Mitigate against the issue with a toddler or infant parenting plan, which includes switching off time with the child about every two to three days.

Birds’ Nest Parenting Plans

Birds’ nest parenting is one of the biggest trends in divorce these days – and for good reason! It is an option that bucks against traditional parenting plan arrangements and it encourages the parents to work around the children (not the children around the parents). Children covered under these parenting plans stay in the home at all times. They do not move from one parent’s house to the next. Instead, the parents move in and out, alternating so they each receive time with the children at the family home. Some also continue having meals together.
