Shared Parenting Plans for Unmarried Parents
Unmarried parents are entitled to the same rights as divorcing couples. You can create a custom shared parenting plan, commonly known as a visitation and custody agreement, to outline your parental responsibilities, time sharing and support obligations.
First, however, you must establish your legal rights through a paternity action. An unwed mother initially has sole custody of the child. A father must obtain a court order to establish his rights. Once a court order has been obtained, the mother and father can work together to develop a parenting plan or resolve disputes in court.
