Paternity Agreements and Parenting Plans in Windsor

When you are not married to your child’s other parent and the relationship is ending, seeking a paternity agreement helps ensure that everyone—especially the child—is taken care of. A paternity plan is similar to a custody agreement as it contains all of the rules pertaining to the care and parenting of the child, covering issues including:

  • Where the child goes to school
  • Which (if any) religion the child will follow
  • Where the child will live
  • How much child support will be paid

You’ll also want to consider other items in the contract, such as:

  • A detailed visitation schedule (including holidays, special occasions and vacations)
  • A plan for modifying the agreement in the future
  • A method of dispute resolution to avoid future litigation

If the parents were living together prior to the end of the relationship and had signed a cohabitation agreement, many of these issues will already be taken care of. It is important to consult a lawyer to make sure that you and your child have your legal rights protected throughout the process.
