Free Parenting Plan

Knowing where to start when looking at the arrangements for children when parents separate or divorce can be difficult. Oratto has produced a parenting plan questionnaire to help you get started with your discussions. Our Parenting Plan is free to download, and can help facilitate a constructive discussion between parents about parenting after separation, keeping the children at the heart of the discussions.

Parenting Plans can be used for a variety of purposes, including:

Proposing suggested arrangements for the consideration of the other parent

A mediation process

  • Enabling a discussion between parents about child arrangements
  • Formalising agreed arrangements for children
  • Including a parenting plan with a C100 application for a child arrangements, specific issue or prohibited steps order.

Oratto’s Parenting Plan can also serve as a formal agreement between parents on the arrangements for their children, and how they would like to co-parent and bring their children up after separation or divorce. You can find our Parenting Plan form in our Family Law section of our website.
