A One Stop Shop for Family Law in Australia
A Parenting Plan is a parenting agreement that:
A Parenting Plan is not binding or enforceable unless it is made after 1 July 2006 and amends a previous Court Order.
If the Parenting Plan is not binding or enforceable, the Court will however consider the contents of the Parenting Plan.
An agreement cannot be a Parenting Plan unless it is made free from any threat, duress or coercion.
It was only until 2003 that a Parenting Plan could be registered with the Court.
A Parenting Plan registered prior to the 2003 changes to the law, remains in force until it is revoked by agreement in writing by the parties or by Court Order.
