What is a communication book?
In cases where parents have difficulty communicating about their children, the court often orders that the parents use a ‘communication book.
What is that?
A ‘communication book’ provides a way for parents to communicate important issues and events relating to their child, without face-to-face interaction, in order to avoid disputes.
The child typically carries the book in their bag between visits to each parent. It is preferable if it is a bound book with numbered pages.
It is important that parents only make entries in the book that are brief and child-focussed. It should not be used for argumentative or self-serving reasons.
