    Yes. You can take sections from any of the plans and add them into your "master" or final version. This way you have a range of options available to you for the kind of parenting plan suits your needs the best.

    Yes. You can add your own text into the plan or edit it to contain whatever you want.

    Change the parenting plan's name to save it as a new document. You may save up to 20 different versions of your parenting plans.

  5. What Guest options are available?
    You may designate multiple guests, each with their own permissions. For example, you may allow your attorney to view and edit your proposed plan(s), while allowing the other parent to only view the proposed plan(s). Permissions may be changed or revoked by you at any time as often as you want.

  6. Can I restrict or control viewing of the plans?

    Yes. You may allow your Guests edit and revise any of the plans you make available to them (the "visible" plans). You can do this by saving an extra copy of the plan just for them and then hiding the original (so the original plan can't be changed).
