These materials will help parents create parenting plans that fit their families and are age-appropriate for their children. The Basic and Safety Focused guides were developed by the State Family Law Advisory Committee's Parenting Plan Outreach Workgroup, which consulted parents and advocates as well as many professionals, including judges, court staff, attorneys, mediators, evaluators, and parent educators and researchers. The Birth Through Three guide was developed by Family Court Services of Multnomah County and the Parental Involvement & Outreach Subcommittee of the State Family Law Advisory Committee, a multidisciplinary group comprised of family law judges, child custody mediators & evaluators, parent educators, and family law attorneys.
