Do you have a plan when child custody disputes arise?

There are some events that will involve unexpected twists, no matter how well one plans for them in advance. Many Salt Lake City residents know this all too well when it comes to child custody, as even the best laid plans for avoiding disputes can fail to remove all disagreements between parents.

Recently, this blog discussed the goals of parenting plans, including providing more predictability and stability for children and parents alike in terms of the raising of the child. The parenting plan can outline aspects of how the child will be raised, and include provisions dealing with the non-custodial parent's visitation and other rights over the child.

It is important to create a parenting plan that will work for the family. The plan should be appropriately tailored to resolve the potential disagreements that could arise, and it should be flexible enough to provide some leeway when unexpected events occur.

And yet, there are some instances in which even the best formulated parenting plan cannot answer a child custody dispute. An event might arise that was not contemplated in the parenting plan, leading to disagreement among the parents as to how it should be handled. At other times, the parenting plan might cover the issue, but one parent may have a disagreement over the parenting plan's application to the unique circumstances.
