A parenting plan is a written agreement you make with your former partner about parenting arrangements for your children. It’s up to you and your former partner to decide what should be included, for example:
· Where the children will live
· How the children will divide their time
· Where they will go to school
· Who will pay for what
· Arrangements for occasions such as birthdays
· Medical care
The parenting plan isn’t legally enforceable unless you ask a court to make orders based on the plan (consent orders). However, it’s a valuable record of your agreement with the other parent.
