Parenting Plans

Parenting Plans, sometimes called Co-parenting Frameworks, can help separated parents to structure an agreement between them as to how they intend to parent their children now that they have separated.

Parenting Plans can include such information as:

  • Communication; how the parents will communicate with each other and also how they will communicate with the children when they are not in their care.
  • Areas covered by Parental Responsibility; such as education, health, religion, and surname.
  • Living Arrangements; including term-time, half-term holidays, Easter holidays, summer holidays, Christmas, bank holidays and special days.
  • Financial Arrangements; including child maintenance and additional financial needs.
