CHILD ISSUES AND PARENTING
DOCUMENTING A PARENTING AGREEMENT

 

How is a Parenting Agreement documented

 

You will be taking a risk if you do not document your parenting agreement.

You can document your agreement in a:

  • Consent Order; or
  • Parenting Plan.

If there is not already a Court Order regarding parenting arrangements, then the only way you can document your Parenting Agreement so that it is legally binding and enforceable is through Consent Orders. 

You can enter into a Parenting Plan but it will only be enforceable if the Parenting Plan is made after 1 July 2006 and it changes some terms of a Court Order previously made. 

If it does not, then that Parenting Plan will only be evidence of what arrangements the parents agreed on.

It will not be legally binding or enforceable.

It is strongly recommended that you document your parenting agreement in a way that will be legally binding and enforceable.
