District Court Guidelines for Parenting Plans
Some District Courts have guidelines for parenting plans. Guidelines are what the District Court usually considers to be in the best interests of the children. The guidelines usually apply to most parenting plans in that court. But, the guidelines will not apply if there are good reasons why they should not. You can check the rules of the court where your parenting plan case is filed to see if there are parenting plan guidelines.
