Family Care Plan

Family Care Plan Counseling Statement Example

The Family Care Plan is a very important part of unit readiness and must be completed and filed by all Army Soldiers who are single parents or dual military. The Soldier must be counseled on a DA Form 4856, developmental counseling form by the unit Commander and given a packet with all of the required forms. The Soldier must complete the family care plan and have it validated by the commander within 30 Days. Soldiers with children that are legally separated from their spouse, become widowed or divorced will also need to initiate a family care plan.
