Parenting Plans

All separated or divorced parents are encouraged to mediate, collaborate or negotiate their parenting matters. You and your ex-partner can agree on the parenting arrangements for your children you can have this agreement recorded by way of a Parenting Plan.

What is a parenting plan?

A Parenting Plan is a written and signed agreement that sets out the arrangements about the living, the time spent with and communication for the children and their parents and can include agreements about the education of children and child support. Parenting plans are particularly appropriate where arrangements for babies or young children are being agreed, but parents know that over time, the arrangements will need to change, to meet the growing needs and development of their children. Parenting Plans are flexible and can be changed relatively easily if and when required.

Importantly, parenting plans are not legally binding, however they can become Consent Orders which are legally binding and enforceable.
