During the time you filed for a divorce or legal separation – a parenting plan is required to be included. This ensures that children are still given care, are attended with their needs, and have time allotted to spend with each parent.
For unmarried parents, this is known as a paternity action and once the father is confirmed to be the biological parent of the child, either via genetic testing and/or paternity acknowledgment form, then a residential schedule is required.
A residential schedule is to be filled out for exactly the same purpose as a parenting plan, except the main difference is that the residential schedule does not provide the other parent decision-making authority. This means if the other parent of the child in a paternity action wants decision-making authority, then FL All Family 140 – parenting plan should be used.
