Shared Custody Agreement

We asked our experts for their best rules to make shared custody work for you, your ex and your children. Maternal assumptions suggested that mothers were by nature the highest caregivers of children. Modern law does not emphasize maternal presumption, but the best interests of the child. When a court finds that the best interests of a child are served by maintaining custody of both parents, a court shares custody. This allows both parents to play a role in the child`s development. CONSIDERING that both parties intend to reach an agreement on shared custody of [CHILD]; For a common custody regime to work, she and your ex must be willing to compromise and cooperate.

We both recognize that our (s) child wants to love and respect us both, regardless of our situation or place of residence, and that the best way to serve our child`s well-being is through our collaboration as parents in common parenthood and by each of us that provides a home where he is loved and to whom he belongs. Our proposal is comprehensive as it is, but also versatile, as all additional or alternative provisions regarding vacation visits, moving contracts, parental drug use or alcohol use or temporary emergency injunctions can be included to meet the needs of each family. If these definitions still resemble you, it is because shared custody is a very specific subtype of shared custody. Thus, to remember the difference between the two, the key is to remember that shared custody is more about making legal decisions for the child, whereas shared custody is about how much time parents can spend with their child. The wife has primary custody of [CHILD] from [TAG] to [TAG] and the husband has primary custody of [CHILD] from [TAG] to [TAG].

You must decide who is responsible for important decisions in your child`s life and include rules that you both approve.
