Family Law: Let's Talk About Parenting and Parenting Plans @ Shoreline Library (KCLS)

When couples with children separate, they often need a parenting plan to spell out where the children reside, how parents make decisions about their children, and who pays for what. If a parent isn’t listed on the birth certificate, sometimes the legal parents must be decided before the parenting plan or child support can be ordered. Find out more in this one-hour focus class.

Presented by members of the Legal Technician Division, PLLC
