Family Attorney Tells Former Couple Why It’s ‘Imperative’ To Get A Co-Parenting Plan
Brittany and her ex-husband, Jeramie, say they divorced about a year after their oldest child, Seth, was born, but have continued to be romantically involved off-and-on for the last 18 years.
The former couple, who also have two daughters, ages 11 and 9, stopped living together about a year ago. They say that when it comes to co-parenting their kids, they’ve tried a number of options, but so far, nothing has worked.

“I think it’s imperative that you guys come up with a co-parenting plan,” says family attorney, Ann-Margaret Carrozza, adding, “That should be in writing, because when we put something in writing, it guards against faulty recollections or faulty expectations.”
Continuing, Ann-Margaret advises them to avoid unnecessarily inflaming the other and to never deprive the other parent of contact with the children.
