Creating a strong parenting plan can be uplifting

Some Massachusetts divorces are like pulling teeth, with splitting-up spouses battling at virtually every turn and juncture. Even some of those decouplings can feature common ground and civility on select points, though.

Take children, for instance. Except in flat-out hopeless cases, even the most battle-ready and aggressive impending exes can take a breath and acknowledge that, despite differences, they can work together to promote their kids' best interests.

That's what it is all about, after all, creating what we term on our Wellesley family law website at the Law Offices of Lisa A. Ruggieri as an "effective parenting plan."

Although the look and feel of such a plan will obviously vary from case to case, it will typically embody some common points.

Increasingly, and as noted by a steady slew of commentators and studies, it will embrace the notion that kids are almost always best served in a post-divorce environment marked by the liberal and continued presence of both parents. Although that can mean different things in varied divorces, it often implies shared joint custody and a clear delineation of parental roles concerning decision making and physical custody.

Here's something to note about parenting plans that often strikes divorcing parents in a reflective and quite positive way: They can be implemented with impressive flexibility and due regard for every material point that makes a family special and unique.

Courts honor that. That is, family law judge favorably view plans where it is obvious that parents have put their kids' interests first and worked hard to get things right.

And any proven and compassionate family law attorney is equally honored to be involved in the process of negotiating and helping to craft a flexible and truly workable plan.

Children should come first. A duly considered and carefully drafted parenting plan can help ensure they always do.
