  1. Good afternoon.
    The father of my children and I cannot agree on a Parenting Plan. What can I do?

    1. Good day Marie

      A parenting plan by its very definition is a document the parents agree to. If you and the father cannot come to an agreement, then a court would have to intervene. This can be very expensive and time consuming. What we suggest is that you try to see a more experienced mediator to resolve the matter and to get you to agree on a Parenting Plan.

    2. Hello

      If you cannot agree on a Parenting Plan, we would suggest you see a professional to assist you . Here you can use a lawyer, social work, psychologist or other suitably qualified person. If that does not work,, and there are still issues, a court would have to be approached to resolve it. This can however be expensive and only a last resort.

  2. Good day
    Can you explain the relevance of a parenting plan?
    I am divorced and my ex husband thinks we should get a parenting plan legally drafted but I don’t think its necessary.

    Kindly elaborate.

    1. Good day
      In essence, a parenting is appropriate for parents who constantly disagrees on parenting aspects. For example, when contact should be exercised. The Plan would be drafted with the purpose of avoiding future disputes. So if there is an issue, you refer to the plan.
