This Toronto Star article by Brandie Weikle describes the potential advantages to creating a parenting plan that grows with your children. While some ex-spouses (i.e., those who can work together cooperatively) may benefit from such an approach, flexibility can also lead to uncertainty in terms of child support amounts (shared parenting under s. 9 of the Federal Child Support Guidelines), so it’s important to be cautious when considering a “flexible” parenting schedule.
