Parenting Tips for Unmarried Parents
There are many avenues unmarried parents can take to maintain a healthy environment for their children.
- Obtain a parenting plan – This legally binding plan helps direct unmarried parents regarding decisions about the children’s health, education, religion and more.
- Establish custody and visitation – Unmarried parents who do not live together should enter into a custody and visitation agreement. This establishes a set household for children and enforceable visitation times.
- Spend quality time with your child – Children benefit from healthy, fun relationships with both parents. Do your best to ensure the time you spend with your children is meaningful.
