Sample physical custody plans

Some states have developed model parenting plans that take into account what is appropriate for
children of different ages and stages of development. The Oregon Judicial Department and the
Supreme Court for the State of Arizona have both developed model parenting plans for Parents that
suggest different parenting plan options.

The following samples are based on those parenting plans.

Birth to 12 months – two evenings a week and Saturdays

Sample Language:

Commencing on _________, Parent A shall have physical custody of the minor child(ren) each week on
Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 pm. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Parent A
shall be responsible for picking up and dropping of the minor child(ren) at the residence of Parent B.
Parent B shall have physical custody of the minor child(ren) at all other times not designated as Parent
A’s time.


At this young age, infants form a primary attachment to one parent and long periods of absence from
the primary attachment figure may be traumatic. Parents should minimize the infant’s basic sleep,
feeding and waking cycles.
