Separation, Divorce and Family Court Support
A Parenting Plan is a written document that outlines how parents will raise their child or children after separation or divorce. By creating a clear parenting plan, your family can avoid future stress by having a firm plan in place for where the children will live, what their schedule will be, and how information will be passed between the parents, among other things. You may have heard of legal terms such as “custody” and “access” used to refer to these arrangements. A parenting plan does not use legal jargon but rather focuses on the roadmap for family life after a divorce or separation, made by the parents through mediation.
In order to work on a Parenting Plan with a professional, you and your partner (or ex-partner) need to be willing to work together in the best interests of your child(ren). The team at Peachey Counselling & Family Support helps you to negotiate the terms of the agreement and will make suggestions that serves your unique family best. Parenting Plans can be a great way to avoid the stress that comes with the court process.
It is always recommended that you speak to a lawyer prior to finalizing any agreement. Get in touch with Stefanie to find out if creating a Parenting Plan would be helpful for your family.
