The Parenting Plan is a written plan worked out between parents after they separate and it covers the practical issues of parenting. The plan can help clarify the arrangements you need to put in place to care for your children after separation, without having to go to court. It can help you in dealing with your children’s other parent or carer, and it asks parents to put the best interests of their children first.
