Universal Citation: MT Code § 40-4-233 (2021)

40-4-233. Final parenting plan -- purpose and objectives. The objectives of a final parenting plan are to:

(1) protect the best interest of the child, consistent with 40-4-212;

(2) provide for the physical care of the child;

(3) maintain the child's emotional stability and minimize the child's exposure to parental conflict;

(4) provide for the child's changing needs as the child grows and matures, in a way that minimizes the need for future amendment to the final parenting plan;

(5) set forth the authority and responsibilities of each parent with respect to the child, consistent with the criteria in 40-4-234; and

(6) encourage the parents, when appropriate under 40-4-234, to meet their responsibilities to their minor children through agreements in the parenting plan rather than through judicial intervention.

History: En. Sec. 19, Ch. 343, L. 1997.
