What Is A Shared Parenting Agreement?
A shared parenting agreement, also commonly referred to as a parenting agreement or parental agreement, is a legally recognised document that outlines the intentions, agreements, and practical day-to-day arrangements for children in separated or divorced families.
While a shared parenting agreement is not enforced in the same manner as a court order, it serves as a written record of the agreed-upon arrangements. It can be invaluable in resolving disputes that may arise in the future.
At Monan Gozzett, our Family Law team is dedicated to helping separated or divorced couples, as well as individuals who are not in a relationship but share parental responsibilities.
We understand the importance of creating a comprehensive shared parenting agreement that promotes the best interests of your children and ensures a harmonious co-parenting relationship.
What Can Be Included In A Shared Parenting Agreement?
The content of a shared parenting agreement can vary based on each family's unique needs and circumstances.
Here are some key elements that can be included in a shared parenting agreement:
Residence and Day-to-Day Care
Determining the primary residence for the child or children and specifying the amount of time they will spend with each parent or other family members.
Outlining how the child or children will spend time with the other parent, particularly if one parent has more day-to-day care responsibilities. This may include provisions for special occasions like holidays and birthdays.
Detailing the financial arrangements made for the support and well-being of the child or children. This can include child support payments and the division of expenses related to their upbringing.
Addressing significant decisions regarding the child's upbringing, such as their schooling, religious upbringing, medical treatment, or potential name changes.
A shared parenting agreement should provide clarity, promote cooperation, and ensure the child's welfare remains paramount as both parents navigate the complexities of co-parenting.
Legal guidance from family law professionals can be invaluable in creating a comprehensive shared parenting agreement that meets your family's requirements.
