AMENDED PARENTING PLAN BOTH PARENTS AGREE
We both agree to the terms of this parenting plan. This parenting plan will become part of
the Judge’s final order when the Final Decree of Dissolution of Marriage or Final Decree of
Parentage is signed by the Judge.
This Parenting Plan involves the following child(ren):
1. LEGAL CUSTODY: (choose only one below with an (⨯))
There is a presumption in New Mexico that Joint legal custody is in the best interests
of the child(ren). An award of sole legal custody to one parent may require a hearing.
The parties will have joint legal custody. This means that the parties will have
joint responsibility and authority for the major decisions regarding the child(ren) in
the areas of religion, residence, non-emergency medical or dental care, education
and recreational activities. Neither of us will unilaterally make a major change
affecting our child(ren) in these designated areas without consulting the other
party. If we cannot agree, the disagreement will first try to be resolved through
mediation or alternative dispute resolution, which is further stated in Section
twenty-two (22). Until agreement or resolution, no change will be made.
