Parenting plan modifications usually occur when there is a change in circumstances, such as one parent moving away, a child custody change, or a change in the visitation schedule.

Major modifications occur when there is a change in custody and minor modifications center more on visitation schedule changes.

If both parents agree to the changes, it is fairly simple to get to get the agreement changed. If there is disagreement over the changes, the modification is mediated. Should mediation fail, a court is asked to assist.

It is important to always think about the possible impact modifications might have on your child.


How do we go about it?

  1. If both parents agree to the changes, we update the plan and both parents sign the updated plan. This equates to one mediation session. We will also then ensure that the changes are registered if the plan is a court order.
  2. Should both parents not agree to the change(s), we mediate or negotiate between the parents until mutual agreement is reached.
  3. In most cases, both parents share the costs.
  4. Updates can be made during face-to-face sessions, Skype or via email.
  5. We will also assist both parents with information on how to implement the changes.
