Question: What happens to a temporary parenting plan signed by both parties after a divorce petition is withdrawn?


There are some legal hurdles to this and not necessarily a simple answer. But, this agreement could be presented in a subsequent Divorce if you want to present it. However, under the relevant statute the Court is obligated to review all Parenting Plans to ensure they are in the best interests of a minor child. For this reason, if the other party asks the Court for an evidentiary hearing, and they ask for it properly, you may have some issues that go before the court and that this Parenting Plan could change.
