What To Define In Your Custody Agreement

What To Define In Your Custody Agreement

It goes without saying that starting a family legal suit of any sort is going to be a difficult process emotionally and in other ways. Indeed, each individual situation is unique, and the parameters surrounding it will vary significantly as well. That being said, you must be represented with this same individuality and have your side of the matter told completely, and our team is ready to help. In today’s blog, your Greenwich, CT attorneys discuss what is defined in your custody agreement and how this document is upheld in a court of law.

Parenting Plan and Your Child’s Best Interests

If you share children with your former partner and are currently undergoing a divorce, chances are, you will have to establish a parenting plan and custody agreement. A parenting plan is just that – a plan that defines the legal responsibilities of each parent and how the child(ren) will be raised. A custody agreement is a doctrine that defines who the custodial parent is and what rights the non-custodial parent has.

By and large, the judge’s ruling will be based on the best interests of any children that are involved. This means that he or she will consider each parent’s income, living situation, employment, and more when determining the placement.

In addition to the items mentioned previously, the judge will assess background and any previous history of abuse, imprisonment, and more. These items are then all weighed against one another, and then the judge will make his or her determination. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give our office a call today.

Visitation and Schedules

Another important item to define in your custody agreement should be the parenting/visitation schedule. The goal of this process is to create a parenting plan that ensures the child’s needs are met in all regards.

Keep in mind, however, that this process can be tricky if the relations between former spouses are not amicable. For instance, individuals rearranging schedules, taking the children out of town, and more. Our team will help you maneuver this process and achieve your best possible outcome. Contact our team to learn more.

Information About Future Changes

Over time, things change. Whether you are moving across the city for a new job or recently were let go, it is important to reflect on these major life changes in your custody/parenting agreement and make the appropriate revisions to the schedule. This process helps ensure your children’s needs are prioritized and considered.
