Splitting up? Put kids first helps you to create a free Parenting Plan online and learn the skills you need to make it work for you both. A Parenting Plan is a written or online agreement between parents. It helps you record how you will share the care of your child now and in the future. It can easily be changed and is not a legally binding agreement.
