II. Legal Custody (Decision Making)(Required Provision)  
¨ 2.1 Joint Legal Custody.  Both parents are fit and proper persons to have joint responsibility for 
the care of the minor child(ren). It is in the best interest of the child(ren) that the parties jointly share in the care 
of the child(ren). The term "joint legal custody" means that both parents have equal rights and 
responsibilities regarding their child(ren) and that neither parent's rights are superior to the other 
¨ 2.2 Sole Legal Custody.  Joint legal custody is not in the best interests of the child(ren). The 
parent granted sole legal custody has the primary right to decide matters regarding matters of health, 
education and welfare in the child(ren)'s best interests. The parent not granted sole legal custody may 
make emergency decisions affecting the health or safety of the child(ren) when the child(ren) is in that 
parent's physical care and control. The grant of sole legal custody to one parent does not deprive the 
other parent of access to information regarding the child(ren) unless the court shall so order, stating the 
reasons for that determination.

Sole legal custody is granted to 	¨	 Mother 	¨	 Father for the following reasons:	 	
¨	  Agreement of the parents.	 	
¨	  The other parent is unable or should not be allowed to exercise any decision	-

designated as the primary decision maker for the best interests of the child(ren) to be served. 	 	
¨	  There is a danger to the child(ren).	 	
¨	  	2.21  Restriction	 of Information Regarding the Child(ren) to Non Legal Custodian.

the following specific reasons (such as agreement of the parties or serious danger to the

The plan should incorporate details about where the kid will live, once the kid will go to the other parent, where the kid will spend holidays, the way the parents will share legal duty of the kid, etc.. The parenting program may also have agreements concerning extra-curricular activities, education, faith and wellness. The parenting program is created to provide for the requirements of the youngster, and the basic requirements of the youngster are these material requirements. A suitable Custodial Parenting program is critical to set a good foundation for a healthy, cooperative exchange of the children.

A parenting program ought to be consistent and detailed. It cannot cover every aspect of life and cannot anticipate how real life will change over the years. It is the same thing as a custody agreement and it contains all of the information about how the parents will continue to handle their parenting responsibilities. You're able to contain in your parenting plan an overall statement that you fully grasp these issues might develop in the future and the way you mean to address them when they do.
