If you and your spouse cannot agree on the grounds for divorce and/or ancillary matters, you are required to attend the MPP before you can file for divorce.
As part of the Court process, you would need to fill in a Parenting Plan when filing for divorce. Discussing your answers in the Parenting Plan with your spouse is encouraged. It is best if both parents can reach an agreement, in which case you will file an Agreed Parenting Plan.
If an agreement is not possible and you file a Proposed Parenting Plan, your answers to the questions would also be useful if you wish to attempt mediation with your spouse on matters relating to your children.
Click the links to access the Agreed Parenting Plan and the Proposed Parenting Plan (Plaintiff/Defendant). After you have filled in the parenting plan, you would be able to print out your responses, which would come in handy during the Court process, or at mediation.
The welfare of your children should be your priority. It is crucial that you consider detailed arrangements relating to your children before filing for divorce. For more details on how you can do so, click here.
