I am wondering whether this is a document I can put together (with my ex's approval) on my own?
Is there anyone here who has experience of doing this - and then how the document was viewed by the court?
The issue that i have is that my ex has very little contact with the children, because he is very focussed on his work.
I'm wondering if there is a judgment made on this in court - for example he sees them for 24 hours every fortnight if he can - but sometimes this is 24 hours in a month or up to 6 weeks.
He has minimal contact with them outside of this . . . no phone calls, no Skype, occasionally plays ps4 with my oldest son, occasionally texts my oldest son. (I have three - a 14 year old and 11 year old twins).
I have lost the emotional fury about this and I just accept it. The children are the same. I'm just wondering how to go about doing a parenting plan based on this - and whether a court will 'take it on'.
Does that make sense?
Do you need a parenting plan? It sounds as though you are in a well established pattern already.
I was told that parenting plans are not worth the paper they are written on.
Have a legal agreement made instead
