Sample Stipulation and Order Modifying Judgment.

This sample order can be used as a shared placement schedule. It is very important that fathers are consistent with their placement schedule. If fathers are not consistent with their placement schedule, the Commissioner/Judge could discontinue your current order and replace it with a less favorable order. To customize your stipulation to your case, use the FA-4147 Proposed Parenting Plan form. This will ensure that nothing is missed during your modification process.
