Parenting After Divorce Easier With Flexible Scheduling

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.

About Leisha Murphy

Partner/Mediator – Vancouver

After being a family lawyer for over 13 years, coupled with my own personal experience with divorce, I have come to understand the difficult transition that comes with the end of a relationship. This experience has put me in the unique position of being able to provide clients with a clear picture of what is to come and how to plan for it. As well as provide clients with guidance and education on how to deal with the day-to-day realities of a separation.
