A parenting plan is a document designed by two parents to confirm how they plan to look after a child when they separate. Sounds easy, but it is not always obvious to know what issues you might want to consider. This course will provide a snapshot of how to create the plan and the questions to ask yourselves when drawing up a parenting plan that works for you. The session will introduce the CAFCASS parenting plan template and talk about some of the main issues to consider. The course will conclude by looking at approaches to managing the plans in the real world.

The course will combine both presentations, open questions and open discussion time to enable the small group, no more than 6 people, to explore each of the following topics:

  • What is a parenting plan
  • Useful plan templates and issues to consider
  • Key challenges such as special days and holidays
  • Creating a plan
  • Living with a plan

The courses run for approximately 1 hour and is delivered online by one of our expert mediators.
