A parenting plan is an agreement that you make with the other parent of your child/ren (former partner) about the parenting arrangements for your child/ren.

The agreement is a written one, and you and your former partner can decide what should be included. Where the children will live, how they will divide their time, where they will go to school and medical treatments are some of the things that are commonly included in parenting plans.

The parenting plan is not a legally enforceable agreement unless it is made into an order by the order – this is known as a consent order. While a parenting plan isn’t legally enforceable, it is an important record of the agreement and could be used as evidence if needed.
