A: Your situation is so specific, you're not going to find a form online that will work for you. If the case is uncontested, hire an attorney who can ensure it's done correctly. Trying to do an international parenting plan on your own is a little like getting on YouTube and searching for tutorials and then trying to fix your own car.
