Whether or not you are married, if you have children, it adds another dimension to ending a relationship. The parents must consider where the children will live, how much time the children will spend with each parent, and who will be responsible for making decisions about the children’s lives. If the parents cannot agree on issues affecting their children, the court will make those decisions for them. Even if parents do agree on a parenting plan, the court must find that it is in the best interests of the children.
