Often, child custody cases can take a year or more to formalize a legal agreement. There are a large number of details to go over and sometimes both parties disagree on the specifics. It is in the best interest of both you and your child to protect yourselves in case of future disagreements with your former partner. The majority of divorces involving children utilize a child custody agreement to create legal documentation of the terms they agree to. While not everyone needs a formal child custody agreement, most do as a way to shield their child from any unnecessary stress.
Dos and Don’ts of Child Custody:
Child custody cases can be stressful for all parties involved. It is important to treat your former spouse with respect for the sake of your children. In order to protect you and your child, some helpful tips to keep communications clear and minimize tensions:
- Communicate with the other party in writing when possible
- Child is on time for school, health checkups, switching between parents
- Stay well organized on your child’s important documents and any information related to your child custody agreement
