Changes to the Tennessee Permanent Parenting Plan

There has been an update to the Tennessee Permanent Parenting Plan. Many judges are not accepting Parenting Plans drafted on the old forms. Please check your footer in the bottom corner of your Parenting Plan document and make sure it says 7/13/2017.

So, what changed in this new form? 1 sentence.

That sentence is in the signature section of Page 8. The new language states:
Under penalty of perjury, we declare that this plan has been proposed in good faith and is in the best interest of each minor child and that the statements herein and on the attached child support worksheets are true and correct. (A notary public is required if this is a proposed plan by one parent. A notary public is required if this is an agreed plan by both parents.)

The old language read as follows:

Under penalty of perjury, we declare that this plan has been proposed in good faith and is in the best interest of each minor child and that the statements herein and on the attached child support worksheets are true and correct. (A notary public is required if this is a proposed plan by one parent rather than one agreed by both parents.)

Make sure you get that new form notarized!
