The purpose of a parenting plan is to support parenting after separation. It will help you discuss issues related to your child matter-of-factly and calmly.
Through a plan, you can agree on practical arrangements and the division of responsibilities to make sure that you both know what is expected of you. The most important aim is to find solutions to ensure that the child stays in contact with both parents.
Unlike an agreement or a court decision regarding child custody and right of access, a parenting plan is not a legal document.
The plan is modelled on the parenting plans used in other countries such as Australia and England.
