While you and your spouse will be separating and getting divorced it will mean changes to the family dynamic and a new structure for your children. There are several things you and your spouse can do to ensure the transition is less stressful on your children. Create a Parenting Plan The first thing you and your spouse should do is create a parenting plan. The parenting plan should focus on what will keep the children’s best interests in mind. The plan should be include:  Where the children will live

It is important to make sure you or your spouse do not attempt to use the children as leveraging tools against each other or to create conflict. When creating the parenting plan it is a good idea to set all differences aside and just focus on the children and their needs. Develop a Child Custody and Child Access Plan In Ontario parents can agree to an equal amount of time with their minor children as long as it is in the children’s best interests. This means both parents have the right to see their children and spend time with them. It is often described as a “shared parenting” arrangement. There are two types of child custody arrangements: Joint Custody and Sole Custody. In a joint custody arrangement both parents will have to agree when making major decisions for the minor children. In a sole custody arrangement one parent is empowered to make all the major decisions for the children without having to get permission or agreement from the other parent. Courts tend to favor joint custody when it is appropriate. You and your spouse need to decide which type of parenting arrangement is best for your particular situation. If you cannot

With child access it can be dependent upon the circumstances of the separation and divorce. In most cases Courts like to see parents work out an access schedule that gives them equal time with the children. If parents cannot agree on an access schedule then the Courts will make one instead and impose it on the parties.
