What Does A Custody Agreement Look Like

If parents want to create a document that only covers child support, they must use a child support contract. In joint custody agreements, parents generally agree to share joint physical and legal custody. When we talk about “sole custody,” we usually refer to a court-ordered agreement in which one of the parents has legal and physical custody of the child. The parent who does not have custody may have limited access, but it was likely deemed inappropriate for the parent for a reason. Most custody arrangements are “joint custody,” which generally refers to joint custody, even if only one parent has physical custody. A custody arrangement is used by parents to determine the details of how they will raise their child or children together, even if they are no longer romantically involved. The agreement deals with issues such as physical and legal custody, visiting hours, health insurance, college and, if you wish, child support. Parents can use this document to create a mutually satisfactory plan for how they will raise their children together without having to entrust control of decision-making to a judge. If both parents can be civilians and work in the best interests of their children, they can save time, money and energy by creating a custody agreement themselves. Finally, there should be a clause that outlines how parents can make changes to the custody agreement if necessary.
