Following the breakdown of a relationship, living arrangements for your children will be the most important thing to agree. Your children will want to know where they will live and who with as well as wanting to know how often they will see their other parent.
You will need to agree living arrangement with your ex-partner, so you can plan for work, leisure and downtime from the children, when they are with the other parent. This will also potentially affect any financial support for your children.
You don’t stop being a parent when your relationship breaks-down with your ex-partner. Parental responsibility remains until the children are grown-up and even beyond that as a parent.
Many separating parents agree between themselves, living arrangements for the children but for some, reaching that agreement can be frustrating and often leads to a falling-out. If you find yourself in this position, the very best option would be to seek the advice of a family mediator.
