parenting-planThe Parenting Plan is a written plan worked out between parents after they separate and it covers the practical issues of parenting.

The Plan can help clarify the arrangements you need to put in place to care for your children after separation, without having to go to court. It can help you in dealings with your children’s other parent or carer, and it asks parents to put the best interests of their child first. There are many benefits of making a Parenting Plan;

  • it will help everyone involved know what is expected of them;
  • it acts as a valuable reference to go back to;
  • and it sets out practical decisions about the children, such as, living arrangements, education and health care.
