Parenting Plans

Parenting plans can help separated parents agree on how they would like to co-parent their children now that they have separated without the need to go to court.

Parenting plans are useful as each parent will know what is expected of them and you can refer back to it.

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
  • Living Arrangements: including term-time, school holidays and special days
  • Financial Arrangements: including child maintenance and additional financial needs
  • Religion
  • Education
  • Healthcare
  • Emotional wellbeing
