There are lots of different ways to put together arrangements for your children after separation with your partner. A common and cost effective way is to put together a parenting plan (also known as a parenting agreement). Parenting plans are written up and signed between you and the other parent and are done out of court meaning you save money whilst reaching an outcome quickly.

What Are Parenting Agreements?
Parenting plans can determine a number of important issues about your children such as (but not limited to):
- Where about your child / children will live
- Who your child / children will spend time with for example the mother , father, or grandparents
- Child maintenance issues i.e who pays for what
- How long your child / children will spend with each parent for example in a supervised centre or in places they decide
- Arrangements around school holidays and domestic + overseas travel
- Medical and schooling arrangements
- How to resolve disagreements between the parents over all of the above
An important part of a carefully drafted parenting plans is allowing the plan to be flexible and changeable as the needs and wants of your children change over time. The benefit of having a flexible parenting plan that it is easy to amend meaning you don’t need to go to court or redo the whole thing again if one party disagrees.
