Do I need a parenting plan? Why?

Absolutely! It creates a structure to your life, your ex-partners life and especially for your child(ren). It's always nice to know what you can expect and when. It offers an amicable set of boundaries and limitations which both parents have agreed upon. Everyone needs to be able to plan their life - be it time with the children or their own personal time. A parenting plan offers structure as a basis of understanding between the parents. Of course, you can request the occasional change - with clear, open communication, everything can be negotiated with the other parent for an amicable solution.

How much could I save by creating my own Parenting Plan?

Family Lawyers charge between $350 and $600 per hour. By the time a client briefs their lawyer, the lawyer writes the Parenting Plan, reviews the document, makes the changes then prints, has it signed by the client and lodges at court, it could easily have consumed seven and a half hours. This means that the document was created at a cost to the client of $2,625 to $4,500. Divorce Answered offers these customisable documents for $149 each with unlimited changes. This is a massive saving for the client, many whom are facing uncertain financial futures.

What if my lawyer wants to change some clauses?
