Your Parenting Plan

Your Parenting Plan

What is a Parenting Plan?

A ‘Parenting Plan’ is a voluntary agreement between you and your child’s other parent about arrangements for your children.

They can be used by parents who are separating, or who have never lived together as a couple, instead of asking a court to decide.

You can choose what you need to agree on in your Parenting Plan. For example, where your children will live, when you will spend time with your children, who else can look after them or how they’ll spend school holidays and birthdays.

The updated guide has lots of useful information and resources for parents to work through together without the expense of solicitors and legal professionals.
