Working Out Joint Custody Details
After a divorce, parents have to make a number of important decisions. If a couple has children, one of the most important decisions that will be discussed is the child custody agreement. If you and your spouse have joint custody of your children, not only will you need to set a regular custody schedule, but you will need to plan for any important exceptions that may arise to your normal arrangement.
Determining matters such as child custody arrangements is never easy, but an experienced child custody lawyer can help this process move forward as quickly and easily as possible. Contact a Denton custody attorney from Alexander & Associates today at 972-420-6560 to learn more.
What to Keep in Mind
There are a number of points you need to consider when drafting a custody agreement, and three things that parents may overlook include the following:
- You Should Discuss Special Arrangements for Holidays – you should denote how you and your child’s other parent will share time with the children during the holidays. This can include every other year arrangements or split arrangements every year.
- Parents Have to Agree on Vacation Plans – typically, plans for vacations with one parent have to be agreed upon by the other parent as well. This includes dates, itineraries, and other details (especially if the vacation is across state lines).
- Custody Agreements Should Include Plans for Emergency Situations – it can be very beneficial for parents to create a plan for special or emergency situations
Creating child custody agreements can be a very detailed and stressful process. For the help you need to make this process as easy as possible, contact a Denton custody attorney from Alexander & Associates by calling 972-420-6560 today.
