Parenting Agreements

Parenting Agreements are designed as a tool to help parents who are separating to agree on future arrangements for their children.The break-up of a relationship is one of the most stressful times in anyone’s life. But for the children of these relationships experiencing their parents’ separation can be especially difficult.

Problems can be minimised when the break-up is sensitively managed by both parents working together to agree on what is best for their children’s future.Parenting Agreements may help separating parents to focus on some of the important areas of their children’s lives which they will want to make plans for. For example, their children’s living arrangements, their schooling, holidays, healthcare and so on.

Links to the Scottish Government's Parent Agreement pack is here, but in my view the Cafcass Parenting Plan pdf provides a better guide. Parenting Agreements are not legally binding so the difference between legal systems doesn't matter.
