What Should You Consider When Making Parenting Arrangements?

Travel arrangements

Who the child or children live(s) with

Communication between the parents / parties

Child maintenance for children who are not covered by the Child Support (Assessment) Act 1989.

Aspects of parental responsibility such as: day-to-day care, development and welfare of the child or children, education, religion, sport, extra-mural activities.

Who the child or children may spent time with (This is usually the parent they do not live with, or someone else who is significant in their life, such as a grand-parent. This time can be spent either face-to-face, or by phone, FaceTime, Skype, zoom, email or letters)

What’s the difference between Consent Orders & Parenting Agreements?

The main difference between Parenting Agreements and Consent Orders is that you do not need to go to court if you and another relevant person, often the other parent of your child or children, have come to an agreement about the arrangements for your child or children.

It is very important that you formally document your parenting arrangements in an agreement about the arrangements for your child or children so that you are clear that you each fully understand what you have agreed. When you put your agreement for care of your children in writing, this assists to avoid disputes or misunderstandings in the future. Under the Family Law Act 1975, you can document your agreement either as a parenting plan or as Consent Orders.

Unlike a Parenting Plan, Consent orders are enforceable. Even though they are made by agreement, and they can be made without a hearing, Consent Orders are still orders of the Court. Consent Orders can be used to change or discharge existing family law orders.

Parenting Orders by Consent are orders made by a Court about children, under Part VII of the Family Law Act 1975. They are orders that you and the other relevant person, usually the other parent of your child or children, agree on. Consent means agree.

When the Court makes Parenting Orders, both parties to the order must abide by the Orders. Breaching an order can have serious consequences. Once final consent orders have been made, there are only a few circumstances in which they can be changed.

We advise that you seek legal advice before you enter into Consent Orders. For information about filing requirements and a step-by-step guide to applying for consent orders go to How do I apply for Consent Orders?

Parenting Arrangements For Babies & Toddlers

When you separate, there are so many different factors that come into play when you are faced with figuring out the best arrangements for your child or children. It can be especially daunting to come up with arrangements for your baby or your toddler.

Here are some of the factors you can consider:

  1. Which parent your child has a primary attachment to.
  2. Whether your child is breastfeeding.
  3. What type of relationship you have with the other parent.
  4. What type of routine your child needs to thrive and which parent is best placed to continue or establish a healthy routine.
  5. Any specific health or other needs your child has.

If you would like to know more, and you want to understand where to look for the regulations around parenting arrangements for younger children, then feel free to read our blog on Parenting Arrangements for the 0-4 Year Age Group.
