Every parent has a certain way he or she thinks a child should be raised. Parents who are married or still in a relationship will usually work together to determine how their child should be raised. Parents who aren’t in a relationship with each other aren’t as likely to be able to work through child raising issues in a productive manner. That is where the child custody agreement comes into the picture.
A child custody agreement is a way that parents of a child can ensure that there is some consistency in the child’s life. This agreement sets standards for the child’s life, including which parent is responsible for making what decisions. It also outlines when the child is going spend time with each parent.
Coming to an agreement on the terms of the child custody agreement is something that might prove to be a bit challenging for parents. We can help you to work through the process of coming up with an agreement that puts your child’s best interests at the heart of the case. If you and your ex are unable to work out the terms of the agreement, we can help you plan your strategy for going before the court.
It is important to remember that the child’s interests must always be the determining factor in a child custody case. You shouldn’t ever use your child as a bargaining tool during the process since that could negatively affect your child. Whether you are willing to work with your ex or know that court intervention is necessary, we can help you to assert your side of the issues at hand.
