If you are a divorcing parent, one of the more contentious issues might be those that involve your minor-aged children. Custody, visitation and child support all require some major decisions and provisions. Once you and your spouse come to an agreement (or the judge decides), the parenting plan is created. This plan is delivered via several orders, all of which must be followed. Unless the parents have decided to go with shared or 50/50 parenting, then one parent will be appointed the primary custodian of the child, and one parent is awarded visitation.
