Do you know the details of a parenting agreement?

If you're moving forward with divorce and have at least one child with the other individual, you know that you'll have to remain in touch in the future. After all, you want to do what's best for your child, which typically means making sure he or she spends time with both parents.

This is where a parenting agreement comes into play. If you are working through a child custody dispute, your end goal is to create a parenting agreement that both parents can follow in the future. This can go a long way in keeping you on track in the years to come.

Here are some of the many things that a parenting agreement should include:

  • The parent who has physical custody of the child
  • The parent who has legal custody of the child (this could be both)
  • Where the child will spend major holidays, vacations and birthdays
  • The visitation schedule of the parent who does not have physical custody
  • The best way to plan for contact with other family members, such as grandparents
  • A plan for dealing with disputes and future changes to the parenting agreement

At the core, these are among the more important details to touch on in a parenting agreement. Even so, you should always remember that every person is in a unique position. This is why you should work to customize the parenting agreement to suit the needs of all parties involved, with an eye toward doing what's best for the child.

With a parenting agreement in place, you'll feel much better about the chance of getting along with your ex-spouse in the future. As you get started with the divorce process, learn more about your legal rights so that you can make informed decisions every step of the way.
