What is a parenting plan?

If you can reach an agreement about arrangements for your children, it can take the form of a ‘Parenting Plan’.

A Parenting Plan can set out your agreement about:

  • how often the children will spend with each parent
  • arrangements for holidays and special days (such as school holidays, Christmas and birthdays);
  • communication and changeover arrangements;
  • how expenses for the children will be paid; and
  • other things that you may agree on such as travel, medical and educational matters.

While not enforceable by a court, Parenting Plans may be considered by the court if they are signed and dated by both parents and entered into voluntarily.

They’re a great option if you and your ex have an amicable relationship and can be easily updated as your needs and the children’s needs change. They’re also affordable – you can create one online using our online settlement solution, Forward>> for $250+ GST.

I love to travel and have already made it to 18 countries across Europe and Asia. My personal goal is to travel to every continent, including Antarctica. My favourite destination so far is Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, where I skydived over the Swiss Alps!

Outside of the law and travel, I am a qualified lifeguard and swimming instructor, and have taught kids from as young as six months to adults.

I am a passionate environmentalist and animal lover. I advocate for kinder lawyering and living through my volunteer work at local sanctuaries and community organisations. I am an unashamed dance mum extraordinaire to my two lively daughters and wife to my ever so supportive and husband. I adore cats, and have 3 – Ruby, Cleo and Kimba, who are very popular on Instagram! You can check them out here.
