Parenting Plans To Assist Visiting Rights For Unmarried Fathers In South Africa:
It is always in the best interests of all parties involved, especially the children, for parents and interested parties to enter into a parenting plan in order to regulate various parental responsibilities and rights in respect of the children. A parenting plan needs to be comprehensive, reduced to writing, signed by all the relevant parties involved and is made an order of the court. Parenting plans encompass the following: where and with whom the child/children are to reside, maintenance of the child/children, visitation rights and major decisions involving the child/children such as religion, schooling and medical decisions. Parenting plans are designed to assist parents and interested parties to minimise any future conflict that may arise in respect of their co-parenting relationship. It is important for parents to note that, notwithstanding the signature of all parties involved, parenting plans are not automatically legally binding documents until such time as it is made an order of the court.
