Planning for Shared Parenting: A Guide for Parents Living Apart is a booklet written in 2005 under the sponsorship of the Massachusetts
Chapter of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFFC) with the
encouragement and support of Chief Justice Dunphy of the Probate and Family
Court. "This guide combines recent developmental research about children and the
impact of divorce on their lives, with the practical needs of parents and
children living apart. It is the hope of the task force members that this
booklet will be useful to parents, judges, lawyers, mediators, and parent
educators in designing realistic, child-focused parenting plans." (from the
Introduction) This booklet has been distributed to every judge and chief
probation officer in the Probate and Family Court.
