When do the South Dakota Parenting Guidelines apply?

In South Dakota, if parents are unable to agree on their own parenting plan, the South Dakota Parenting Guidelines become mandatory and will be used as their parenting plan.  In the event a parent’s time with the children becomes an issue in court, the judge will set whatever parenting plan best meets the needs of the children.
