In a child custody dispute the court must ordinarily establish a parenting plan that provides forshared parenting that is in a minor child’s best interest. Shared parenting means that both parents are responsible for the major decisions which affect a minor child. In determining what is in the best interest of a minor child, there are no presumptions for or against the father or mother of the minor child while creating or modifying the parenting plan.
The court must take all into account all current relevant and appropriate information in order to make a fair and reasonable determination of how the minor child’s best interests will be served.
Once the court makes a decision regarding a parenting plan and time sharing schedule, the court may issue an order allocating responsibilities for certain decision making and the care of the minor child.
