It is essential that you outline your agreed-upon living arrangements, as well as your commitments regarding access arrangements, holidays, and vacations.

Here’s a list of the must-haves you’ll want to include:

  1. A basic residential schedule
  2. A regular visitation schedule
  3. A projected schedule for parenting time over the holidays
  4. A projected schedule for parenting time on birthdays
  5. Visitation transportation arrangements, including backup plans
  6. Neutral drop-off or access exchange arrangements (if necessary)
  7. Anticipated changes to your family’s residential access schedule (as your children age)
  8. Alternatives schedules for school holidays
  9. How changes to the schedule should be proposed and negotiated in an effort to minimise last-minute schedule changes
  10. Regular and backup child care arrangements
  11. Whether the other parent must be considered first when a babysitter is needed (also known as the ‘right to first refusal’)
  12. How relocation requests will be handled, including how much notice must be given and how relocation disputes will be addressed
  13. Plans and/or schedules for maintaining ongoing relationships with extended family members
  14. Agreed  guidelines for introducing the children to either parent’s ‘friends’ or dating partners

    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
