For divorcing couples with children, the main question on both parties’ minds is often how each spouse can preserve his or her relationship with the child after the marriage ends. But it is not enough to simply devise a visitation agreement that satisfies both parents’ desire for contact with their child: A parenting plan must always take into account the child’s best interests as well.
