Family Law | What is a parenting plan?

A parenting plan is a plan to clarify the arrangements to care for children between parents after a divorce or separation. It is a written child-centric plan agreed between parents and it covers an array of practical issues of parenting.


A parenting agreement is to avoid court and to constructively work together to provide the children with a safe and secure environment that will benefit them throughout their childhood and enable them to develop into strong, confident happy adults in the future.


This agreement must cover everything from day-to-day care, to all special occasions relevant to your family and unique situation. We have put together a practical document, a template for you to use, defining the parenting arrangement and important aspects for you to use. Download it HERE.


A parenting plan is not automatically legally binding. However, there is the option of formalising the agreement through a Consent Order. Please contact us if you wish to discuss this.
