Parenting Plans are an alternative method to formalising a parenting agreement. Some Plans also make provision for the financial support of the children. At Parry Coates Family Law we have prepared numerous Parenting Plans between those parents who require an element of certainty and structure but do not need to the Court’s ratification.
A Parenting Plan needs to be:-
- In writing;
- Include the arrangements for your children;
- Be signed and dated by each parent.
They are simple to enter into, but require a further agreement in writing to vary or discharge it or an order of the Court. We suggest that you obtain legal advice before entering into any written formal document.
